I’M WRITING A GRAPHIC NOVEL!!!
So, this is the news I’ve been keeping secret so long, and I’m super-super excited about it.
I signed a deal with Calista Brill at FIRST SECOND BOOKS to write two graphic novels.
The first will be a collaboration with Faith Erin Hicks, the writer/artist of SO MANY GREAT COMICS, including Friends with Boys.
This all happened because of mutual admiration and Twitter. My career advice is now: Get excited about the things you love, and then TELL EVERYONE.
I have a new book coming out in Spring/Summer 2014! It’s called “Landline,” and it’s about a woman who discovers a way to talk to her husband in the past. She thinks maybe she’s supposed to try to fix her marriage … But what if she’s supposed to make sure it never happened at all?
This spring, after “Eleanor & Park” came out, I went on a book tour to high schools across the Midwest. A number of questions about the book kept coming up again and again, like:
Why is “Eleanor & Park” set in the ’80s? Is it a true story? Will there be a sequel? What happened to Eleanor’s cat — is the cat okay?
So I decided to write a few blog entries, addressing some of these questions — just in case other people have them, too.
I’m starting with this one: Why is Park Korean?
The first time I was asked this, my answer was: “Um, because he is.”
But the more that it came up, the more I thought about it — and the more realized that there were actually A LOT of reasons why …
Another books column from my newspaper days. This one is about how real paper books have to be beautiful to survive the digital revolution. “If I’m going to buy a book, an actual book — if I’m going to bring it into my house and make space for it — it better be beautiful. It better justify its visual existence.”
