About this author

emily m. danforth was born and raised Miles City, Montana--home of the "world famous" Bucking Horse Sale. Her first novel--The Miseducation of Cameron Post--was influenced, in part, by the landscape and cowboy/small town culture of eastern Montana. emily has her MFA in Fiction from the University of Montana and a Ph.D in English-Creative Writing, from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Currently she is an Assistant Professor of English at Rhode Island College in Providence.



“'Collective' or otherwise, I think art, as a pursuit, has a place and purpose in the 'public' sphere. There are few other known forces in the world that can provide such comfort, solace, provocation, humility, inspiration, arousal, wonder, and self-discovery.”

“...and there I was sending all the wrong signals to the right people in the wrong ways. Again, again, again.”
Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post

“I told myself that I didn't need any of that shit, but there it was, repeated to me day after day after day. And when you're surrounded by a bunch of mostly strangers experiencing the same thing, unable to call home, tethered to routine on ranchland miles away from anybody who might have known you before, might have been able to recognize the real you if you told them you couldn't remember who she was, it's not really like being real at all. It's plastic living. It's living in a diorama. It's living the life of one of those prehistoric insects encased in amber: suspended, frozen, dead but not, you don't know for sure.”
Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post

“But Ruth was wrong, too. There was more than just one other world beyond ours; there were hundreds and hundreds of them, and at 99 cents apiece I could rent them all.”
Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post
