David Ebershoff is the author of four books, including the #1 bestseller The 19th Wife and The Danish Girl, which is now a major motion picture starring Eddie Redmayne and directed by Tom Hooper. David had a long career at Random House, where he was most recently Vice President and Executive Editor. He teaches in the graduate writing program at Columbia University.

In his own words: “There are no rules in fiction. Every story or novel can be whatever it needs to be. This is what makes fiction potentially radical, even now.”
