Suzanne Guillette is the author of Much to Your Chagrin: A Memoir of Embarrassment (Atria, 2009), which is about the year she spent collecting embarrassing stories on the streets of Manhattan, only to discover that her own life had become the most embarrassing story of all. Her work has appeared in Tin House, O Magazine, Quartz, the Rumpus, and elsewhere. Most recently, she published Battle Dress: What I Wore to Confront My Past (Kindle Single, 2017), a longform essay about reckoning with decades-old sexual violence. She has written about boxing, generosity, intuition, the genre of memoir and more. In her creative life, she explores the concept of authentic voice, through movement and the visual arts. Suzanne has a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and a Master's of Fine Arts degree in Non-Fiction.
