Jane Smiley: 925 E. Washington


Jane Smiley Apartment
925 E. Washington Apartment

I went to Iceland for nine months, and when I returned, I lived at 925 E. Washington, in the right hand apartment, a lovely railroad-style place – wood paneling, big front porch, Murphy bed. It was there that I met my second husband, who was friends with my neighbor. I also remember giving a party there for Ian McEwen, who was in town for a reading.
