About the Author

Soman Chainani's first novel, The School for Good and Evil, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list, has been translated into languages across six continents, and will soon be a major motion picture from Universal Pictures.

As a graduate of Harvard University and Columbia University's MFA Film Program, Soman has made films that have played at over 150 festivals around the world, and his writing awards include honors from Big Bear Lake, New Draft, the CAPE Foundation, the Shasha Grant, and the Sun Valley Writers' Fellowship.

When he's not telling stories, Soman is a die-hard tennis player who never lost a first-round match for ten years ... until he started writing The School for Good and Evil. Now he loses all the time.

Julia Iredale is an artist from Victoria, BC. She earned a Bachelors degree in Illustration from Emily Carr University in 2015, and now works as a freelance illustrator for clients around the world. Her work is informed by her love of mythology, dark fantasy, and human psychology, weaving these together to create beautiful, mysterious characters and worlds.

Reviews

A volume that transports readers to a place where the lines between beastly natures and beautiful appearances can be difficult to discern. Expertly crafted . . . Chainani's writing is raw in what it lays bare on the page, perfectly appropriate to revisiting these beloved, ubiquitous stories that may have left readers with naΓ―ve expectations or dissatisfied conclusions. For any lover of fairy tales who seeks alternative endings.--Kirkus Reviews
"Terrifying, chilling, unexpected, and glorious. A must-read for any fairy tale devotee who wants to view classic stories through a new lens."--Medium
