Allison Amend was born in Chicago, Illinois, on a day when the Cubs beat the Mets 2 - 0. She holds an MFA from the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop.

"Allison Amend is a gifted storyteller - no, more than gifted. Her writing is powerful enough to create its own kind of weather. Her characters are so real it's as if you could reach between the pages and shake hands with them. If you want to read good stories, read this book." - Hannah Tinti
