Short biography
Dawn Powell moved to New York City's Greenwich Village in 1920 and was an active member of the artistic scene there, often using it in her novels. She never became a really popular writer in her own lifetime, and most of her works were out of print by the time of her death. However, they've since undergone a revival and she's now considered an underappreciated comic genius.
