About Unbuilt Projects, Paul Lisicky’s recent hybrid of fiction, memoir, and poetry, Joy Williams writes: “Lisicky’s clean, comfortable prose always manages to break your heart, for he has the diviner’s gift for finding the wellsprings of sorrow.” Lisicky is also the author of two much praised novels, Lawnboy and The Burning House, and a memoir, Famous Builder, which Edmund White describes as showing “all the vital signs of genius.”
A recipient of awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the James Michener-Copernicus Society, the Henfield Foundation, and the Fine Arts
Work Center in Provincetown, Lisicky is currently the New Voices Professor at Rutgers–Camden.
