Erika Dreifus is the author of a story collection, Quiet Americans, which was published by Last Light Studio and named a 2012 Sophie Brody Medal Honor Title (for "outstanding Jewish literature").

Erika Dreifus and 24 other people liked Ron Charles's review of The Last Cruise:
The Last Cruise by Kate Christensen
"There are a few simple prohibitions to remember when packing books for vacation:

Don’t take “Deliverance” on a canoe trip.

Don’t take “Into the Wild” camping.

And please don’t take Kate Christensen’s new novel on your next Carnival Cruise.
