Jason Gurley

By day, I'm a user experience designer; by evenings/weekends, I write novels from my home in Scappoose, Ore. My newest is Awake in the World, published February 2019 by Roaring Brook Press; my previous novel, Eleanor, was published by Crown in 2016 and has since been translated into German, Portuguese, and Turkish. I’m currently working on a new project.

All the feels

Feels nice when your hometown bookstore puts you in the midst of a wonderful display like this one, among some of my heroes — Kazuo Ishiguro, Audrey Niffenegger — and luminous authors, like Ken Liu or Carmen Maria Machado.

Perhaps the best part, though, is the shelf talker beneath Eleanor with a glum face and the word SAD in large, rain-colored marker. SAD. This utterly made my day today.

They've done a whole fabulous post about this wall on Tumblr, with photos of all the books, and links to buy them. Go buy all of them
