About the Author
Samantha Hunt's novel about Nikola Tesla, The Invention of Everything Else, was a finalist for the Orange Prize and winner of the Bard Fiction Prize. Her first novel, The Seas, earned her selection as one of the National Book Foundation's 5 Under 35 that year. Her novel, Mr. Splitfoot, was an IndieNext Pick. Her story collection, The Dark Dark, was a best book of the year at NPR and Vogue, as well as a winner of the St. Francis College Literary Prize and a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award.Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, McSweeney's, Tin House, A Public Space, and many others. She lives in upstate New York.
It's hard to imagine that a book so brief could tackle the Iraq war, grief over the loss of a parent, the longing for freedom, an enthrallment with the ocean, loneliness, sexual awakening, faith, and etymology, all in less than 200 pages, but Samantha Hunt has done it, and done it well.
