Amy Meyerson is the bestselling author of The Bookshop of Yesterdays, which has been translated into nine languages. She has been published in numerous literary magazines and teaches in the writing department at the University of Southern California, where she completed her graduate work in creative writing.
Originally from Philadelphia, she currently lives in Los Angeles.
Her newest novel, The Imperfects (to be published May 2020), tells the story of the Miller family. Estranged and dysfunctional, they experience the death of their matriarch and with it, the potentially life-changing inheritance of the long-lost Florentine diamond. The only question is whether or not the Millers will survive it.
Angie Kim is the author of the national bestseller Miracle Creek, named a “Best Book of the Year” by Time, The Washington Post, Kirkus, Real Simple, Library Journal, The Today Show, Amazon, and Hudson Booksellers, and a Good Morning America Hot Summer Read. Kim is one of Variety Magazine’s “10 Storytellers to Watch,” and has written for Vogue, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Glamour, Salon, and Slate. She moved from Seoul, Korea, to Baltimore as a preteen, and attended Stanford University and Harvard Law School, where she was an editor of the Harvard Law Review. A former trial lawyer, she now lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and three sons, and is at work on her next novel.
Miracle Creek is a thoroughly contemporary take on the courtroom drama, drawing on the author’s own life as a Korean immigrant, former trial lawyer, and mother of a real-life “submarine” patient. Both a twisty page-turner and an excavation of identity and the desire for connection, Miracle Creek is a ravishing debut by a major new writer.
