About the Author

Adam White grew up in Damariscotta, Maine, and now lives with his wife and son in Boston, where he teaches writing and coaches lacrosse. He holds an MFA from Columbia University. The Midcoast is his first novel.


"Vividly drawn and movingly told, The Midcoast is a searching, honest, and evocative portrait of human relationships, hometown secrets, and the hidden machinations of privilege. Adam White's debut enthralls, a modern classic from a bold and insightful new voice in fiction."--Alexandra Kleeman, author of Something New Under the Sun

"In deft, knowing, and crystalline prose, Adam White writes, in essence, the novel about the Maine coast, a winsome, perplexing, and ultimately shadowy place that doesn't give up its big secrets easily."--Richard Ford

"I tore through the saga of the Thatch family in two nights . . . The Midcoast is a reader's dream-- tense, ominous, and deeply wise."--David Benioff, co-creator of Game of Thrones

"The Midcoast is a brilliant, ferocious debut novel about ambition, class, and crime in coastal Maine. Simultaneously propulsive and nuanced, Adam White brings his powerful gifts to bear on a story that speaks directly to our troubled moment with eloquence and heart. After this, Vacationland will never look the same."--Andrew Martin, author of Early Work

"The Midcoast expertly weaves sharply-realized scenes and a profound sense of empathy into a plotline full of tension, resentments, and dangerous secrets. In capturing Maine, Adam White has captured America as a whole, with our complicated mix of class mobility and class constraints. In his talented hands, we understand how virtues like love and loyalty can still lead us to a sea of vices. A wise and powerful debut!"--Stacey Swann, author of Olympus, Texas
