About the Author

Jonathan Evison is the author of four novels including the New York Times bestseller, West of Here. A film adaptation of his third novel, The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, is in production starring Paul Rudd and Selena Gomez. He lives on an island in Western Washington.


As sweet as it is inventive, profound as it is hilarious, unflinching as it is big-hearted.
