Thomas’ HERE FOR IT is a hilarious memoir-in-essays about growing up seeing the world differently, finding unexpected hope, and experiencing every awkward, extraordinary stumble along the way. Mr. Thomas is a senior staff writer at Elle online where he has written the daily pop culture and politics humor column “Eric Reads the News” since 2016. His writing for the theater has been seen on stages around the country.
McCarthy’s EVERYONE KNOWS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU is a propulsive debut novel about the dark side of female friendship, as old habits give way to obsession and betrayal when a young woman reconnects with her estranged childhood best friend. Ms. McCarthy is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Her fiction has appeared in The Best American Short Stories, American Short Fiction, and the Harvard Review, and she has received support and grants from the Edward F. Albee Foundation, the Lighthouse Works, and the Elizabeth George Foundation.
