About the Author

Brady Hammes is a writer and documentary film editor living in Los Angeles. The Resolutions is his first novel.


"A vivid literary thrill ride that adroitly connects D-list Hollywood, Russian ballet, Gabonese elephant conservation, Christmas, drug addiction, and adult siblinghood's awkward first steps . . . Take the journey. The pages will fly by."--Matthew Quick, New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook and The Reason You're Alive

"This smartly written tale of three dysfunctional siblings in trouble is fast-paced, witty, and engaging--full of wry wit and insight into the bonds between brothers and sisters. Brady Hammes is an exciting new talent."--Dan Chaon, New York Times bestselling author of Ill Will

"The Resolutions is touching and thrilling in the most unexpected ways as two brothers, one an out-of-work actor, the other a research scientist in Africa, different as Cain and Abel, join forces to save their sister, a ballerina whose addiction to heroin is killing her. Taking you from a Russian dance campus to the poacher-riddled thick of Gabon, The Resolutions will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, wanting to call your family to say you love them. And to tell them you know exactly what they should read next."--Sara Gruen, New York Times bestselling author of At the Water's Edge

"A harrowing tale of three far-flung siblings in crisis, The Resolutions is ultimately a sustained celebration of family in a chaotic world. With assured prose and compassion, Brady Hammes has crafted a debut as wise as it is engaging."--Smith Henderson, author of Fourth of July Creek

"Brady Hammes makes a wildly diverse trio of siblings utterly convincing and their story utterly absorbing. The Resolutions is an imaginative and engrossing novel from a splendid new writer."--Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Perfume River and A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain
