In LORNA MOTT COMES HOME, Johnson brings us into the dreamy, anxiety-filled American world of Lorna Mott Dumas, where much has changed and where she struggles to create a new life to support herself. In the midst of a large cast, the precarious balance of comedy and tragedy, happiness and anxiety, contentment and striving, generosity and greed, love and sex, Diane Johnson, our Edith Wharton of ex-pat life, comes home to America to deftly, irresistibly portray, with the lightest of touch, the way we live now.

Johnson is a bestselling author, Pulitzer Prize finalist, and two-time finalist for the National Book Award. She currently lives in Paris and San Francisco.
