Mona Awad is the author of Bunny: A Novel and 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl. She has published work in The New York Times Magazine, Time, VICE, Electric Literature, McSweeney’s, and elsewhere. Miranda Fitch, the protagonist of Awad’s latest book, All’s Well: A Novel (Simon & Schuster), is in all kinds of pain – physical, emotional, you name it. The accident that ended her acting career also left her with excruciating chronic back pain, a failed marriage, and a dependence on painkillers. And now, she’s on the verge of losing her job as a college theater director. That’s when she meets three strange benefactors who have an eerie knowledge of Miranda’s past – and a promise for her future. O, The Oprah Magazine called it a “sparkling valentine to the Bard. A dream of a novel, perfect for a midsummer night’s read.”
