Since beginning her career as a professional writer in the mid '80s, Rebecca has published 10 books of prose, with the 11th, The Last Time I Saw You, to be published this November by San Francisco's City Lights. The Gifts of the Body is her most famous work — it has been translated into seven languages and won several awards. Her most recent book, Excerpts from a Family Medical Dictionary, which describes the passing of her mother, was published in the U.S. by the University of Wisconsin Press and in the UK by Granta. In 2001, Chicago's About Face Theater turned her early book The Terrible Girls into a play, and Seattle's New City Theater is about to premiere her original two-act play, The Toaster. Rebecca is a faculty member at Goddard College in Vermont.
