Colander, Valerie Nieman

Tagged: Author

(1955-    ) US newspaper editor, poet and author known mostly for her Young Adult novel, Neena Gathering (1988), set with some effectiveness in a balkanized post-Disaster America, though much that might seem innovative here is borrowed fairly directly from other tales set in what has become a very familiar venue. In this context, the heroine comes of age. The book was reissued under the byline Valerie Nieman, also used for the author's second novel To the Bones (2019). [JC]
