Tom Grimes

Tom Grimes is the author of five novels. He edited The Workshop: Seven Decades from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. Mentor: A Memoir recounts his friendship with Frank Conroy, author of the classic memoir Stop-Time.

"From now on, anyone who dreams of becoming a novelist will need to read Tom Grimes's brutally honest and wonderful 'Mentor. While there have been plenty of books on how to write, or how to get published, or how to promote your work, as well as a number of triumphalist accounts of "making it," this is a story of what it's like to just miss succeeding." --- Michael Dirda, The Washington Post
