Ursula Hegi (HEHG-ee) is primarily a writer of long fiction but has also written and published short stories. Unearned Pleasures, and Other Stories (1988) and Hotel of the Saints (2001) are two of her short-story collections. She also has published a children’s book, Trudi and Pia (2003), about Trudi Montag, the dwarf of her novels, and a circus dwarf named Pia. The book is an adaptation of her novel Stones from the River. Hegi’s interest in the experience of being an émigré led to her nonfiction work Tearing the Silence: Being German in America (1997).
