Lily King

Lily King is the award-winning author of five novels. Her 2014 novel, Euphoria, was inspired by events in the life of anthropologist Margaret Mead and won the Kirkus Award, The New England Book Award, The Maine Fiction Award, and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Award. Euphoria was also named one of the 10 Best Books of 2014 by The New York Times Book Review.

King’s newest novel, Writers & Lovers, is a portrait of an artist as a young woman. It tells a story of art, love, and ambition while exploring the terrifying and exhilarating leap between the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another. Writers & Lovers was named one of Lit Hub’s Most Anticipated Books of 2020.

Lily King grew up in Massachusetts and received a B.A. in English literature from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an M.A. in Creative Writing from Syracuse University. She is the recipient of a MacDowell Fellowship and a Whiting Award. She lives in Maine.
