Laura Adamczyk has won awards from the Union League Civic & Arts Foundation of Chicago and the Dzanc/DISQUIET International Literary Program. Her work has appeared the Chicago Reader, Guernica, McSweeney’s, Ninth Letter, Salt Hill, and more. Her short story collection, Hardly Children, was published by FSG in 2018. She lives in Chicago.
"Adamczyk knows how to destabilize the reader while holding their attention and intrigue, which makes for a devastating first novel that you won’t soon forget."
Michael Welch, Chicago Review of Books“Utterly immersive, Island City is like an intimate conversation with a stranger at 1 am. It’s laced with stinging humor, clarifying wisdom, and the grainy detail of lived experience. This is a novel that seeps into your bones.”
