The Correspondence Artist front cover by Barbara BrowningThe Correspondence Artist
"Only a New York University Performance Studies professor can write a novel about a love affair narrated via email, using four different avatars to protect the identity of a famous unnamed artist, that include a Basque separatist, an Israeli novelist, a Malian musician, and a Vietnamese multimedia artist, and pull it off [in a] comedic, intelligent book."
Slice Magazine



I'm Trying to Reach You front cover by Barbara BrowningI'm Trying to Reach You

"Deftly blending highbrow intellectual concerns with the informality of Facebook-era communiques, Browning's newest is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking."
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
