Mary La Chapelle (born April 28, 1955 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin), is an American short story writer.


La Chapelle graduated from University of Minnesota, and from Vermont College with an MFA. She teaches at Sarah Lawrence College.[1][2]

Her work has appeared in Lumina,[3] Nimrod, Northern Lit Review, Redbook, and First.



In House of Heroes: And Other Stories, she chooses rough-hewn subjects - a mime and a giant who struggle with nonconformity, a boy who finds a dead body. But Ms. La Chapelle's writing and insights are smooth and elegant, a respite for readers bored with minimalist fiction and self-indulgent heroes.[4]
