Hailed as "one of the finest writers of her generation" by the Boston Globe, Dorothy Allison's best-selling novel Bastard Out of Carolina was a finalist for the 1992 National Book Award, won the Ferro Grumley prize, an ALA Award for Lesbian and Gay Writing, and became an award-winning movie. It has been translated into more than a dozen languages. Her novel Cavedweller was a New York Times Notable Book and was adapted for the stage and the screen.
