Amy Sohn is the author of the novels The Actress, Prospect Park West, and three others, which have been translated into 11 languages. She got her start at the alternative weekly New York Press, where she wrote the autobiographical "Female Trouble" column and got a lot of hate and love mail. The New York Times said of her, "A little-known event that took place around the time that Richard M. Nixon was resigning as President was the birth of Amy Sohn....Ms. Sohn has emerged as a representative of her generation, those comfortably nihilistic, politically disengaged, economically anxious urbanites about whom so much has been written." Amy has been a columnist at New York, the New York Post, and Grazia (UK) and has also written for Elle, The New York Times, The Nation, Playboy, Harper's Bazaar and many other publications. She has written TV pilots for such networks as HBO, FOX, and ABC. A native Brooklynite, she lives on the south side of Prospect Park with her husband, daughter, and bull terrier.
