Judith Grossman is an American writer. She earned a scholarship to Oxford, from which she received a First Class degree in English in 1958. She received a Ph.D. from Brandeis University, in 1968.[1] She taught at Bennington College.[2] She also taught in the Creative Writing MFA programs at U. C. Irvine (1992–95) and the University of Iowa (1997). She was chairman of the liberal arts division at Mount Ida College in Newton, Mass.[3]

She was married to the poet Allen Grossman until his death in 2014. Her children are Lev Grossman, Austin Grossman, and Bathsheba Grossman.





Publisher's Weekly (October 1999) said in Her Own Terms Grossman achieved a balance of deadpan wit and understated emotion. Grossman depicts a generation of transatlantic post-war English drifters in the early '60s.
