Lindsey Lee Johnson

Lindsey Lee Johnson’s debut novel, The Most Dangerous Place on Earth, was published by Random House in January 2017. The novel was named a Barnes & Noble Discover Pick, an American Booksellers Association Indie Next Pick, a LibraryReads Pick, a Book of the Month Club Pick, and People Magazine‘s Book of the Week. It was a San Francisco Chronicle bestseller, and the Chronicle called it “extraordinary, impossibly funny and achingly sad.” The New York Times called it “an alarming, compelling and coolly funny debut novel” and praised its “compassion, its ability to see the humanity inside even the apparently hopeless person and the shimmering intelligence of its prose.” Lindsey attended the Community of Writers with the assistance of the Stearns Scholarship.
