Halle Butler is a National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 Honoree and one of Granta’s Best Young American Novelists. Her first novel, Jillian, was called the “feel bad book of the year” by the Chicago Tribune, and her second novel The New Me was called “wretchedly riveting” and “a definitive work of Millennial literature” by The New Yorker. Both books are about depressed secretaries.
