Mezzo-soprano Vivien Shotwell’s debut novel Vienna Nocturne (Random House, 2014) has been praised by The Washington Post as “intoxicating,” and by Chatelaine as “an exquisite read.” Vivien recently received her Artist Diploma from the Yale School of Music, where she was the recipient of the Phyllis Curtin Career Entry Prize and the David L. Kasdon Memorial Prize. A dual Canadian-American citizen, and a graduate of Williams College and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, Vivien is represented by Barrett Vantage Artists and Ayesha Pande Literary. Vienna Nocturne will be translated into ten languages. INTERVIEW with Vivien in Library Journal
