About this author

Allison Burnett grew up in Evanston, Illinois, the son of a clinical psychologist and a Northwestern University professor. After graduating from Northwestern, he was a fellow of the Lila Acheson Wallace Playwriting Program at the Juilliard School. His novels include Christopher (a finalist for the 2004 PEN Center USA Literary Award), The House Beautiful, Undiscovered Gyrl, and Death By Sunshine.

Allison's essays, stories, book reviews, and poetry have appeared on various websites and in various publications.

Allison's screenwriting credits include Red Meat, Untraceable, Resurrecting the Champ, Feast of Love, Underworld Awakening, and Gone.


There is almost no chance a book of mine will ever receive a better review than this one. It appeared in the Los Angeles Review of Books, a couple of months ago. If you do not know the LA Review, check it out, because it's the best book site in Los Angeles, read by even the east coast elite, who usually ignore everything west of the Hudson.

“Only on the Internet can a person be lonely and popular at the same time.”
Allison Burnett, Undiscovered Gyrl

“There are some things success is not. It's not fame. It's not money or power. Success is waking up in the morning so excited about what you have to do that you literally fly out the door. It's getting to work with people you love. Success is connecting with the world and making people feel. It's finding a way to bind together who have nothing in common but a dream. It's falling asleep at night knowing you did the best job you could. Success is joy and freedom and friendship. And success is love.”
Allison Burnett

“I did not write the quotation listed above and there is no way for me to delete it. It's from the remake of Fame which I wrote, but the monologue was written by Aline Brosh McKenna, who wrote The Devil Wears Prada, as well as other movies”
