How Did I Get Here? A Writer's Education
Award-winning author David Homel mixes memoir and fiction, truth and make-believe in these mediations on his youth in Chicago, his education, and the influences that led to his career as a writer.
David Homel is the award-winning author of nine novels and five works of fiction for younger readers, the latter co-authored with Marie-Louise Gay. In 2021, he ventured into the field of the personal essay with the memoir Lunging into the Underbrush: A Life Lived Backward (LLP 2021), which––part medical memoir and part speculation about the love life of older women and men––led Homel to return to the slippery field of self-discovery and the remodeling of the past.
