Gillian Flynn Biography — New!

If you haven’t heard of her yet, you will. Her novel Gone Girl is being filmed by David Fincher and stars Ben Affleck.

Actually, if you haven’t heard of her yet, you need to go back and read that first sentence. You just heard of her!

Gillian Flynn writes suspense thrillers, and Gone Girl is her third and most successful so far. It’s the story of a young married couple in trouble — on their anniversary, the wife goes missing, and the husband ends up being the prime suspect. The story is told from both perspectives — hers and his.

The book was a runaway bestseller whose film rights were quickly sold — to Reese Witherspoon. Gillian Flynn ended up writing the screenplay, and David Fincher is set to direct.

Flynn came to the fiction world by way of writing about celebrities and pop culture for Entertainment Weekly. Read more about her in the Who2 biography of Gillian Flynn.
