Her biography tells us that Jill Ciment was born in Montreal, Canada. She is the author of five novels, Act of God (March 2015), Heroic Measures, The Tattoo Artist, Teeth of the Dog, and The Law of Falling Bodies; a collection of stories, Small Claims; and a memoir, Half a Life. Her most recent novel Act of God, is a contemporary noir-novel that starts out a comedy-of-errors and turns darker at every hairpin turn. Heroic Measures has been made into a feature film starring Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton, coming to theaters in May 2015. She has been awarded a National Endowment for the Arts, a NEA Japan Fellowship Prize, two New York State Fellowships for the Arts, the Janet Heidinger Kafka Prize, and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
