Jonathan Evison


Jonathan (Johnny) is the New York Times best-selling author of four novels, including All About Lulu, West of Here, The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, and This is Your Life, Harriet Chance! His fifth novel, Lawn Boy – a sharp-eyed, sidesplittingly funny examination of class divides and white privilege on Bainbridge Island – will be published April 3, 2018. His third novel was adapted into a feature film, The Fundamentals Of Caring, starring Selena Gomez, Paul Rudd and Craig Roberts.  

A Bainbridge Islander since age eight, Johnny worked a number of jobs – landscaper, punk-rock singer, caregiver, radio DJ and telemarketer, among many others – before breaking through at age 40 with his acclaimed debut, All About Lulu. Iconic Pacific Northwest author Sherman Alexie has called him "the most honest white man alive."  

“Jonathan Evison's voice is pure magic. In Lawn Boy, at once a vibrant coming-of-age novel and a sharp social commentary on class, Evison offers a painfully honest portrait of one young man's struggle to overcome the hand he's been dealt in life and reach for his dreams. It's a journey you won't want to miss, with an ending you won't forget." -- Kristin Hannah  

Johnny divides his time between homes on Bainbridge Island and near Sequim with his wife and three children. To learn more about his work, go to http://www.jonathanevison.net/

I like Mike! Jonathan Evison's 2018 release is a winning take on a modern Everyman — young, underemployed, uncertain, and on the wrong end of the stick on a wickedly recognizable Bainbridge Island. Mike, who mows lawns and dreams of topiary, will charm. His story will discomfort you, but it is well worth the read! ~ Victoria
