Samantha Hunt's novel about Nikola Tesla, The Invention of Everything Else, was a finalist for the Orange Prize and winner of the Bard Fiction Prize. Her first novel, The Seas, earned her selection as one of the National Book Foundation's 5 Under 35 that year. Her novel, Mr. Splitfoot, was an IndieNext Pick. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, McSweeney's, Tin House, A Public Space, and many others. She lives in upstate New York.
"Hunt, with the publication of her first collection of stories, “The Dark Dark,’’ is poised to break through as one of our major fiction writers . . . Hunt is by turns hilarious, wry, wrenching, and lyrical."
Priscilla Gilman, The Boston Globe
