Emily Brout lives and works in New York City like Cyndi Lauper or Giuliani. As a teenager, she was occasionally known as the vocalist in the rock band The Indecent. More recently, she has written many short stories one of which was recommended by Etgar Keret, translated into Hebrew, and published in Maaboret. She thinks this is pretty damn cool, and may act as psychic atonement for never having been Bat Mitzvahed. She has also written for Tom Tom Magazine and the Feminine Collective.
