Mylène Dressler’s Fourth Novel to be Published


The Last To See Me, the latest novel by Mylène Dressler, Assistant Professor in the Department of English and Creative Writing, will be published by Arcade Press in the fall of 2017.

A literary ghost story set in the remote logging camps of Northern California in the early 20th century, her new work, “draws on classics in the genre while asking contemporary questions about work, class, and justice, and what it means to be visible or invisible in history,” Mylène says.

A writer of fiction and creative nonfiction, Mylène has been on the Guilford faculty since 2011. Her published work, praised by reviewers as “splendid” (New York Times), “vibrant” (Library Journal) and “compelling” (Bloomsbury Review), includes novels, short stories and essays in English and in translation, and has been honored with awards including the Carson McCullers Fellowship in Writing and the Paisano Fellowship in Literature.

A recipient of the Bruce Stewart Award for Excellence in Teaching, Mylène leads workshops in Guilford College’s creative writing major, including courses in fiction, the contemporary novel and creative nonfiction.

She is the faculty adviser to Guilford’s literary magazine, the Greenleaf Review, and directs the Sherwood Anderson Creative Writing Scholarship Program. Her short-form work has recently appeared in the Kenyon Review, Creative Nonfiction, Literary Hub, and the Massachusetts Review.
