editor, Harvard Review

Christina Thompson is the editor of *Harvard Review* and the author of a memoir, *Come on Shore and We Will Kill and Eat You All*, which the *Philadelphia Inquirer* described as “a moving examination of exploration--both inner and outer--and the way our travels into remote places on Earth can become travels into the remote places in our hearts and souls. ” Her essays and criticism have appeared in *Vogue*, the *Boston Globe*, the *American Scholar*, and the 1999, 2000, and 2006 editions of *Best Australian Essays*. A recent recipient of fellowships from the NEA and the Literature Board of the Australia Council, she teaches in the Writing Program at Harvard University Extension, where she was awarded the 2008 James E.
