Actress, activist and New York Times bestselling author Annabelle Gurwitch’s most recent book I SEE YOU MADE AN EFFORT (Penguin/Random House) was one of three finalists for the James Thurber Prize for American Humor Writing 2015. The New York Times says “Annabelle Gurwitch is a funny woman…. At the center of the book is a serious question: How are we supposed to age? She convincingly argues that there is no longer a template.” I SEE YOU MADE AN EFFORT was also named one of Kirkus Reviews’ 10 Books Guaranteed to Make You Laugh.
Annabelle gained a loyal following during her numerous years co-hosting Dinner & a Movie on TBS and as a regular commentator on NPR. Her other books are YOU SAY TOMATO, I SAY SHUT UP and FIRED! Annabelle’s essays and satire appear in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Harpers Bazaar, More, Marie Claire, Men’s Health, The Los Angeles Times, L.A. Magazine, Glamour, and The Nation.com. WHEREVER YOU GO, THERE THEY ARE (about family, of course) will be released next spring.
