Albert (along with Jennifer Block) wrote a spirited feminist defense of Goop, the wellness and lifestyle company founded by Gwyneth Paltrow, in which she wrote that criticizing Goop is a "a classic patriarchal devaluation." She added, "It’s condescending to suggest that if we are interested in having agency over our bodies, if we are open to experiencing heightened states of awareness and emotion, if we are amazed by and eager to learn more about the possibilities of touch and intention and energy, and if we’d like to do everything within our power to stay out of doctors’ offices, we are somehow privileged morons who deserve an intellectual (read: patriarchal) beat-down." This piece has been criticised for "...cit[ing] cherry picked scientific evidence when it suits them, then denigrat[ing] science as a male conspiracy (or whatever) when science is inconvenient to their position." and for avoiding mentioning "...the episode on psychics in their entire op-ed. Addressing that Goop uncritically accepts and repeats claims that energy healing can enhance psychic abilities in its show would undermine their attempt to claim that Goop is not peddling potentially harmful pseudoscience."
In February 2015, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt published Albert's second novel, After Birth. Publishers Weekly praised Albert for it, saying she, "applies a blistering tone to modern motherhood in this cri de coeur of a novel...In lesser hands, Ari might be unlikable, but Albert imbues her with searing honesty and dark humor, and the result is a fascinating protagonist for this rich novel." Via Twitter, Emily Gould declared, "This book takes your essay about 'likable female characters,' writes FUCK YOU on it in menstrual blood, then sets it on fire."
Albert has taught creative writing at Columbia University's School of the Arts and The College of Saint Rose in Albany. She received a residency at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Netherlands in 2010.
In 2010, Albert edited Freud's Blind Spot, an anthology of essays by other writers on the subject of sibling relationships. It was published in 2010 by Free Press. Contributing writers included Etgar Keret, Jill Soloway, Steve Almond, Victor LaValle, Peter Orner, Lauren Grodstein, Rebecca Wolff, and Joanna Hershon.
Albert is a recipient of the Moment Magazine Emerging Writer Awards, given to a writer whose work deals with themes that would be of interest to millions of Jewish readers. In 2009, she was a finalist for the Sami Rohr Prize, which recognizes the unique role of writers in the transmission of Jewish experience.
Her first novel, The Book of Dahlia, was published in 2008 by Free Press and was a finalist for the Sami Rohr Prize. Karen Russell praises Albert's unique abilities as a writer, saying, "Albert writes about a twenty-nine year old woman dying of brain cancer, structuring the book around the cheesy aphorisms from a self-help guide, and if that set-up doesn’t sound like an obvious source of comedy, you’ve got to watch Albert at work." The New Yorker said, "Albert writes with the black humor of Lorrie Moore and a pathos that is uniquely her own, all the more blistering for being slyly invoked." Entertainment Weekly selected the book as one of the ten best novels of 2008 and said, "What begins as a darkly funny novel develops quickly into a genuine tragedy, though it's unlike any you've read before."
Albert's first book, How this Night is Different, for which she was awarded The Moment Magazine Emerging Writer Award, is a collection of stories published by Free Press in 2006. Publishers Weekly said, "these 10 stories by debut writer Albert explore traditional Jewish rituals with youthful, irreverent exuberance as her characters transition into marriage and child-rearing." A reviewer in Lilith Magazine wrote, "Even if Elisa Albert had not chosen to end her collection with a love letter to Philip Roth, one could read her audacious debut as just that."
Albert was raised in an observant Jewish home with two older brothers in Los Angeles. She attended Westlake School for Girls and later Harvard-Westlake School, where she wrote a column for the school newspaper called "Phat Albert." She studied creative writing and women's studies at Brandeis University. She received her MFA from Columbia University in 2004.
