Bette Howland is an American writer and literary critic.

She wrote for Commentary Magazine.[1] She appeared at Yaddo.[2]

Much of her work has focused on the city of Chicago, although she left the city in 1975, living a migratory life around the USA; when she gained the MacArthur Fellowship she was able to give up her work and write full-time, living in rural Pennsylvania.[3]




Things to Come and Go is a quirky collection of three long stories by a writer of unusual talent, power and intelligence.[6]
