Mozina's first collection, The Women Were Leaving the Men (2007, Wayne State University Press), is the winner of the 2008 Great Lakes Colleges Association New Writers Award for Fiction and a 2008 finalist for the Glasgow/Shenandoah Prize for Emerging Writers. His second collection, Quality Snacks, was a finalist for the Flannery O'Connor short fiction prize and other awards (2014, Wayne State University Press). He is also the author of Joseph Conrad and the Art of Sacrifice (2001, Routledge).
In Andy Mozina's debut novel, Contrary Motion (Spiegel & Grau/Random House), a divorced concert harpist is still chasing his dream of being an orchestra player as his life comes apart.
Contrary Motion has already made some waves. The New York Post declared it a "Must Read", BookPage says it " both entertains and draws out emotion," and Booklist gave the novel a starred review.
