and another work of nonfiction, Blue Arabesque
, both on many year-end “best” lists including The New York Times
“100 Notable Books of the Year.” Her first memoir, A Romantic Education
, about her Cold War travels to Prague, and subsequent books, established her as a leading voice in contemporary memoir. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker
, the Paris Review

. Hampl has received many awards, among them grants from the National Endowment for Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation. In 1990 she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship. She is Regents Professor at the University of Minnesota, and a member of the permanent faculty of the Prague Summer Program.
