About the Author
Adam Mansbach is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of a picture book for adults that has been translated into forty languages and named Time Magazine’s “Thing of the Year,” but whose title cannot be disclosed here. He has also written over a dozen other books, including one that won the California Book Award, one that’s been taught at more than a hundred colleges and universities, and one that’s about a kid trading letters through time with Benjamin Franklin. He recently wrote the screenplay for the movie Barry, which is about President Barack Obama as a college student, and his work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Esquire, and on NPR’s This American Life and All Things Considered. He lives in Berkeley, California and has a daughter who is already way funnier than him.
