Jonathan Evison (born 1968), is an American writer best known for his novel All About Lulu. His work, often distinguished by its emotional resonance and offbeat humor, has been compared to a variety of authors, most notably J.D. Salinger,[1] Charles Dickens, and John Irving.[2] His debut novel, All About Lulu, published in 2008 by Soft Skull Press, won critical acclaim, including the Washington State Book Award, and landed on many year-end “Best of” lists, including Hudson, where it enjoyed the added distinction of being the only independent title selected in 2008. The L Magazine included All About Lulu in its Best Books of the Decade.[3] A second novel, West of Here, will be released in February 2011 from Algonquin. Editor Chuck Adams (Water for Elephants, A Reliable Wife, An Arsonist's Guide to Writers Homes in New England) has called West of Here the best novel he's worked on in over four decades of publishing.[4] A third novel, The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, will be released in 2012. He is currently at work on a fourth novel, The Dream Life of Huntington Sales. In 2009, Evison was awarded a Richard Buckley Fellowship from the Christopher Isherwood Foundation.[5]
He is one of the contributors to the literary website Three Guys One Book and is the executive editor of The Nervous Breakdown.
Evison formerly worked as a laborer, a caregiver, a bartender, and a syndicated radio host. In this latter incarnation, he was the writer, producer, and host of the award winning comedy show, Shaken, Not Stirred. In his teens, Evison was the founding member and frontman of the Seattle punk band March of Crimes, which included future members of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.
Born in San Jose, California, he now lives on Bainbridge Island, Washington.
