Read full description of the books:
“Intimate, big-hearted, compassionate and clear-eyed, Brafman’s novel turns secrets into truths and the truth into the heart of fiction.” —AMY BLOOM, author of Lucky Us and Away
“From roots in one religious tradition, comes a tale of emotional redemption for all of us. Michelle Brafman’s astonishing compassion for all human frailty infuses this story about the need for truth and the promise of forgiveness.” —HELEN SIMONSON, author of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand
“Heartfelt and genuine, Washing the Dead never betrays the complicated truths of family and tradition.”
— DAVID BEZMOZGIS, author of Natasha and Other Stories and The Betrayers
“Like a Jewish Anne Lamott, Brafman reels you in with warmth, depth and heart.” —SUSAN COLL, author of The Stager and Acceptance
Three generations of women confront family secrets in this exquisitely wrought debut novel that examines the experience of religious community, the perilous emotional path to adulthood, and the power of sacred rituals to repair damaged bonds between mothers and daughters.
Michelle Brafman’s award-winning short stories and essays have appeared in the Washington Post, Slate, Tablet, Lilith Magazine, Bethesda Magazine and elsewhere. She teaches fiction writing at the Johns Hopkins University MA in Writing Program and lives in Glen Echo, Maryland with her husband and two children.

Read information about the authorWriting is not my first gig. I’ve also worked as a coffee barista, radio advertising salesperson, and filmmaker, among other jobs. My resume reads like a ransom note, yet this assortment of life experiences has propelled me toward my big passion, the coaxing and telling of stories.
As a filmmaker, the stories that surfaced after the cameras stopped rolling drove me to write some bad short fiction. I kept writing, though, and eventually earned an MA in fiction writing from Johns Hopkins University. My short fiction has since won some nice awards, including a special mention in the Pushcart Prize Anthology, and my essays and stories have appeared in Slate, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Review of Books, Tablet, Lilith Magazine, the minnesota review, and numerous other publications. I am currently at work on my third book of fiction, a novel titled Status Change.
In addition to my own writing, I help others find and tune their narrative voices. I teach creative writing at The Johns Hopkins MA in Writing Program, the George Washington University, The Washington Center for Psychoanalysis’ New Directions Program, and smaller workshops throughout the Washington, DC area. In 2003, I founded Yeah Write, a writing coaching business.
A Milwaukee,Wisconsin native and University of California, San Diego alum, I still dream about Kopp’s custard and La Jolla Cove swims. I now live just north of the Washington, DC border, in Glen Echo, Maryland, with my husband and two children.
