Eleanor Lerman is the author of The Mystery of Meteors (Sarabande Books, 2001). She was born in the Bronx, New York, in 1952. She is the author of two other previous books of poetry, published over thirty years ago, Armed Love (Wesleyan University Press) and Come the Sweet By and By (University of Massachusetts Press). After an early, aborted career as a cultural icon (in 1975, The New York Times called Armed Love "X-Rated" when that was still shocking), she fled the field of art for comedy. She transitioned to true-life crime, working on books with her brother (No Mercy and Public Enemies by John Walsh with Philip Lerman). She has been nominated for a National Book Award, received the inaugural Juniper Prize, and was the recipient of a fiction grant from the New York Foundation for the Arts. She is a lifelong New Yorker.
