A former acquiring editor at Harcourt and HMH Books, Brodeur has earned the National Magazine Award for Best Fiction four times with Zoetrope, a literary magazine she founded with filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola. She has served as judge for the National Book Awards and the National Magazine Award, and her essays have appeared in the Modern Romance section of the New York Times and the paper’s opinion pages.
