about

Powerful. Koppelman's instincts help her navigate these choppy waters with inventiveness and integrity."-Los Angeles Times"Koppelman explores with ruthless honesty a woman come undone."-Bookslut"Koppelman mostly writes from inside Laney's disillusioned mind, ricocheting between the quotidian details of wife and motherhood and big-picture musings, forming exquisite stand-alone tone poems."-ElleNow a major motion picture starring Sarah Silverman in her dramatic-acting debut, and Josh Charles,I Smile Back tells the affecting tale of Laney Brooks, a mother and wife on a self-destructive streak. She takes the drugs she wants, sleeps with the men she wants, disappears when she wants. Lurking beneath Laney's seemingly composed surface is the impulse to follow in her father's footsteps, to leave and topple her family's balance in the process.The film adaptation ofI Smile Back premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival in the prestigious US Dramatic competition. Silverman's affecting dramatic turn in the lead role has garnered praise in film trade reviews as "tremendous," "terrific," and "awards worthy," and will inspire an onslaught of attention upon the film's national theatrical release.Amy Koppelman is a graduate of Columbia's MFA program. Her writing has appeared in theNew York Observer andLilith. She lives in New York City with her husband and two children, and is the author of the novelsA Mouthful of Air andI Smile Back.
