Meg Donohue

Meg Donohue is the bestselling author of All the Summer Girls and How to Eat a Cupcake, which was translated into Dutch, German, Italian, and Polish. She has an MFA from Columbia University and a BA from Dartmouth College. Born and raised in Philadelphia, she now lives San Francisco with her husband, two young daughters, and Cole, her endearing Taiwanese rescue pup.

Recently I asked Donohue about what she was reading.  Her reply:
I just finished reading Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. I found it to be devastatingly sad and beautiful. The characters in the book are so fully realized it seems almost impossible to believe that they’re not real people. And Atkinson is a master at lacing her work with a palpable sense of tension—taut, dark moments of foreboding and threat—that keeps you turning the pages.
