ANJALI SACHDEVA’s short story collection, ALL THE NAMES THEY USED FOR GOD, was named a Best Book of 2018 by NPR, REFINERY 29, and BOOKRIOT, longlisted for the Story Prize, and chosen as the 2018 Fiction Book of the Year by the Reading Women podcast. THE NEW YORK TIMES Book Review called the collection “strange and wonderful,” and Roxane Gay called it, “One of the best collections I’ve ever read. Every single story is a stand out.” Sachdeva is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and has taught writing at the University of Iowa, Augustana College, and Carnegie Mellon University. She also worked for six years at the Creative Nonfiction Foundation, where she was Director of Educational Programs. She currently teaches at the University of Pittsburgh and in the MFA program at Randolph College. She has hiked through the backcountry of Canada, Iceland, Kenya, Mexico, and the United States, and spent much of her childhood reading fantasy novels and waiting to be whisked away to an alternate universe. Instead, she lives in Pittsburgh, which is pretty wonderful as far as places in this universe go.
