Christine Benvenuto

Christine Benvenuto grew up in Brooklyn, New York, and graduated from Sarah Lawrence College. In the interests of earning a living she has polished paperweights, taught journalism and edited and ghost-written highly complex works on science and technology that she did not understand in the least. She is the author of SEX CHANGES: A MEMOIR OF MARRIAGE, GENDER, AND MOVING ON, and SHIKSA: THE GENTILE WOMAN IN THE JEWISH WORLD, and her short stories and articles have appeared in many publications. She and her three children live in New England. Read more at: http://christinebenvenuto.wordpress.com.
