Originally from rural south Georgia, David Lawrence Morse studied in Russia after the collapse of communism, cleaned toilets in Yosemite, and taught English then lived on a rice farm in the foothills of Yamaguchi, Japan, before eventually earning an MFA in fiction at the University of Michigan. He is now the director of the writing program at the Jackson School of Global Affairs at Yale. His work has appeared in The Washington Post, One Story, Missouri Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, The O. Henry Prize Stories, and elsewhere. His first play, Quartet, was performed by the Takács Quartet and the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. In his spare time, Morse renovates old houses, watches fantasy movies with his family, and tosses the frisbee for his border collie, who wishes he could throw it farther.
