Andy Abramowitz, is the author of two novels, A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO FREE FALL (Lake Union Publishing, 2020) and THANK YOU, GOODNIGHT (Touchstone, 2015), and is from a multi-generation Chizuk Amuno family. His work has been hailed as “soul-searching . . . fun and unfailingly heartfelt” by The Washington Post and “funny and compassionate” by Kirkus Reviews, but he is most proud of the fact that Grammy winner Rick Springfield described THANK YOU, GOODNIGHT as “a sage novel for anyone who believes that our talents don’t fade as we get older, they only get better.”
A native of Baltimore, he lives with his wife, two daughters, and their bichon poodle in Philadelphia, where he enjoys classic rock, pitchers’ duels, birthday cake, the sound of a Fender Rhodes piano, and the month of October. He could never build a roller coaster, not even if his daughters begged him to, because he’s terrible at math and he can’t draw.
