Emily Listfield



Writers to a lot of different things. At least I do.

But it all comes down to telling a good story.



Emily Listfield is the author of seven novels, including a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. Her books have been published in numerous foreign countries. She is the former Editor-in-Chief of Fitness Magazine and Executive Editor of Parade's HealthyStyle. Her writing apears frequently in Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, The New York Times, and many other national publications. She has served as a panelist at SXSW, worked across media platforms and is the co-founder of Jyst, a crowd-sourced relationship advice app for women. She lives in New York City, where she raised a pretty great daughter. 



"A writerly page-turner..deft pacing keeps the action moving and the reader guessing." - Publisher's Weekly

“Searing, poignant, achingly real” - USA Today "Listfield spins a tale of supreme loss into one of gutsy, grace-filled redemption.”- Elle

"A beautiful, compelling novel...It's impossible not to instantly care for these flawed people. They are us." - Los Angeles Times

"It's hard not to become absorbed in the nail-biting, knuckle-whitening suspense that Listfield expertly creates and develops." - Booklist

A Notable Book of the Year:

“Listfield proves to be an accurate, often disarming reporter of her generation’s foibles.”– New York Times

“Listfield writes with a briskness and an immediacy that is crisply delicious.” - West Coast Review of Books

“An often incisive, compulsively readable account of love in the 1980s" -Booklist
