About the Author
Emma Copley Eisenberg is a queer writer of fiction and nonfiction. Her first book, The Third Rainbow Girl: The Long Life of a Double Murder in Appalachia, was named a New York Times Notable Book and was nominated for an Edgar Award, a Lambda Literary Award, and an Anthony Award, among other honors. Her fiction has appeared in Granta, McSweeney's, VQR, American Short Fiction, and other publications. Raised in New York City, she lives in Philadelphia, where she co-founded Blue Stoop, a community hub for the literary arts.
"Ripe and undeniably rich . . . a full-on sensory experience . . . The novel delights in rendering its bodies--human and landscape alike--as wholly, queerly complex. Characters are both the voyeur and the exhibit here; they encounter twin licks of fear and desire, experiencing the acute ache that comes from creating painfully good art. I fell deeply in love with this book, marveling at its lushness and its attention to detail, happy to follow wherever I was led. Emma Copley Eisenberg is a brilliant writer and Housemates is superb."--Kristen Arnett, New York Times bestselling author of Mostly Dead Things

"An intimate portrait of a burgeoning relationship against the vast landscape of the open road, Housemates is a warm and inviting novel. Like the large format camera her character wields, Eisenberg captures the complexity of both people and places with precision and generosity. And finally there's a book about Pennsylvania and Philly that looks like the place I know and love!"--Sara Novic, New York Times bestselling author of True Biz

"Housemates is the brilliant, queer, abundant, art-drunk, soulful, sexy American road trip novel we've needed for so long. Eisenberg writes about the way we live now with tremendous insight and a wide, wide heart. Believe me: This is one journey you don't want to miss."--Stacey D'Erasmo, author of The Complicities

"Radiant and invigoratingly truthful, Housemates invites us to think about the community and country that are possible when we love."--Megha Majumdar, New York Times bestselling author of A Burning
