Writer Crush of the Week (#13)

You thought Origami Zoo just stopped crushing? Nope. We’re more in love with writers than ever, and we are back to tell you all about the admiration we’re not-so-secrelty harboring.

Our Writer Crush this week is none other than Laura van den Berg! We first went head over heels for her when we read her debut collection of stories, What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us, so we couldn’t be more excited to be publishing her new collection of short-shorts, There Will Be No More Good Nights Without Good Nights, to be released on September 10!

We love her long titles, we love the strange animals whose natural habitats are her stories, we love the massive amount of heart and humor and magic Laura somehow manages to pump into every paragraph. She is a young writer you simply have to read.

Check out “To the Good People of Mars” and “Parakeets,” then pre-order There Will Be No More Good Nights Without Good Nights, complete with a fortune cookie fortune by Laura van den Berg herself.
