About the Author

Anna Fitzpatrick is a Toronto-based writer and editor. She is the author of the children's book Margot and the Moon Landing (very different from Good Girl) and has written for the New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, The National Post, TheGlobe and Mail, Rookie, Vice, Hairpin, Hazlitt, and more. Good Girl is her debut novel.


"Good Girl lures you in with its excellent sex scenes, but it seals the deal with its authentic portrait of what it feels like to be a young woman in the world. Sex, friendship, family, work -- who knows what to make of any of it? Anna Fitzpatrick's debut is both funny and titillating, and, like so few early sexual encounters, totally satisfying." -- Emma Straub, author of All Adults Here and Modern Lovers
"Good Girl is also a uniquely gentle portrait of a complex, complicated young woman just trying to get things right. Plus, it's incredibly, intensely, laugh-out-loud funny." -- Rebecca Tucker, The Globe and Mail
"Good Girl is a brilliant debut -- sharp, funny, sexy, and unnerving in the best way. Unsentimental but achingly real. Fitzpatrick is a daring new writer to watch." -- Zoe Whittall, author of The Spectacular and The Best Kind of People
"Lucy, the protagonist of Good Girl, might know what it means to do a good job, be a good friend, or be good in bed, but this is the story of her stumbling towards how. How do we take care of what matters to us, and why do we value the things we do? Funny until it hurts, Good Girl brilliantly captures the vivid details and fuzzy feelings happening in the mind of a person on the verge of becoming herself. This is a great novel about a character desperate to be good." -- Haley Mlotek
"On feminism, loneliness, and the question of kink, Anna Fitzpatrick bluntly probes the contradictions of sex-positive culture, baring the many ways that shame feeds arousal. Good Girl is a sensitive girl's hardcore." -- Tamara Faith Berger, author of Queen Solomon
