Andy Abramowitz
DARLING AT THE CAMPSITE (Lake Union, 2021)
A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO FREE FALL (Lake Union, 2020)

“A family drama that twists and turns like any good roller coaster…witty and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. Perfect for fans of Jonathan Tropper’s This Is Where I Leave You.”Booklist

“At once hilarious and poignant, A Beginner’s Guide to Free Fall explores the ups and downs of love, marriage, family, and all that life encompasses with such wit and incision, you’ll wish you hadn’t read the whole book so quickly.”—Allison Winn Scotch, New York Times bestselling author of In Twenty Years

“Childhood wounds often linger long into adulthood, as siblings Davis and Molly discover in Andy Abramowitz’s wry, compelling new novel. A story about second chances and the power of family, A Beginner’s Guide to Free Fall is a potent reminder that as long as we’re alive, it’s never too late to make a change.”—Camille Pagán, bestselling author

A Beginner’s Guide to Free Fall has all the thrills, emotions, and unexpected turns of the best roller coasters. I immediately connected with these characters and couldn’t wait to see what was around each bend in the track of their story. Take a seat, pull down the safety bar, and settle in, because you are not going to want to get off this ride until you turn that last page. This is a great book!”—Elizabeth LaBan, bestselling author of The Restaurant Critic’s Wife, Not Perfect, and Beside Herself


THANK YOU, GOODNIGHT (Touchstone, 2015)

“Read if: You’ve got a secret hobby you wish was your job.”—Businessweek

“Soul-searching . . . Fun and unfailingly heartfelt.”Washington Post

"Think High Fidelity and About a Boy with a dose of Music & Lyrics thrown in."—Billboard Magazine

“The literary equivalent of a good Cameron Crowe romantic comedy . . . There's an undeniable charm and gentle wit to this book.”—Arkansas Democrat Gazette

“The mix of angst and humor make this book ideal for a road trip or a day at the beach.”—Baltimore Magazine

“A novel for those of us who longed to be rock ’n’ roll stars while settling for our routine day jobs.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“Very funny, deftly done . . . With a good deal of compassion and a great eye for the comic detail, Abramowitz delves a little deeper here. . . . A pleasure to behold.”—Booklist

“An edgy, funny story about the lead singer of a one-hit-wonder ‘90s rock band now working as a lawyer who ends up getting the band back together—with surprising results.”—DuJour Magazine

"The pacing is quick, the emotional current soars, and the dialogue rings true. Abramowitz's debut is both funny and compassionate, using the world of the music industry to illustrate the questions of life and legacy that so many of us ponder."—Kirkus Reviews

Thank You, Goodnight is a hilarious send-up of the music industry, late-onset adulthood, and where the two often uncomfortably meet. It’s also a sage novel for anyone who believes that our talents don’t fade as we get older, they only get better.”—Rick Springfield, author and Grammy Award-winning musician

“What do you do when you’ve given up on your dreams at age 25? When you’ve flamed out embarrassingly after a brief stint as a rock star? When you’re now nearing 40 and have nothing and no one? You put the band back together. In the character of Teddy Tremble, Andy Abramowitz has created a kind of 21st century Binx Bolling, a man in desperate search for meaning, maturity, and redemption. Funny, tender, and moving, Thank You, Goodnight is a debut from a writer to watch.”—John Kenney, author of Truth in Advertising

“Andy Abramowitz nails it with Thank You, Goodnight, a novel that is both comic and serious—just like real life. The characters are mordant and funny, the dialogue is crisp, and the story surprised me in delightful ways. What an accomplishment!”—David Small, author of Almost Famous

“A wild and spirited story about dreams lost, found, and broken. After all the reading fun it didn't have to be wise, but it was.”—Daniel Wallace, author of Big Fish
