Peter Gadol

Literary L.A. - Silver lake

By Peter Gadol
Professor, Graduate Writing

 

And then it was autumn again, and Saturdays they would wake early when the first clean light came up over the oak and fir at the top of the ridge and eased its way down across their glass house and overgrown slope, down to the pitched yards and shingled cottages along the street below their street, down across timber and brush and fallen limbs, across the boulevard all the way to the patient lake, where it would linger on the water, and ancient and forgiving light by noon.

Peter Gadol awarded NEA fellowship

Graduate Writing Professor Peter Gadol was awarded a Creative Writing Fellowship by the NEA. His six novels include The Long Rain, Light at Dusk, and most recently, Silver Lake, which was nominated for awards from the Southern California Independent Booksellers Association and the Lambda Literary Foundation. His work has been published in foreign editions, and his short fiction has appeared in Story and Tin House.
