IWH w. Stephen Graham Jones My Heart Is a ChainsawJoin us for the fall 2021 Inside the Writers House kickoff, when Writers House instructor Alex Dawson talks with NYT bestselling, Blackfeethorror author Stephen Graham Jones,  who's been called “a literary master” by National Book Award winner Tananarive Due (The Good House), “one of our most talented living writers” by Tommy Orange (There There), and "the best in the business" by Josh Malerman (Birdbox).

Stephen's brand new novel, My Heart Is a Chainsaw, has been called "as brilliant as ever" (NPR), "gorgeously weird" (Rolling Stone), and “a paean to slasher films" (Washington Post),"that also manages to defy and transcend genre” (Alma Katsu, author of The Hunger). On the surface is a story of murder in small-town America. But beneath is its beating heart: a biting critique of American colonialism, Indigenous displacement, and gentrification, and a heartbreaking portrait of a broken young girl who uses horror movies to cope with the horror of her own life. The author of thirty other novels and collections (incl. The Only Good Indians), Stephen's award-winning work has been called "gritty and gorgeous" (New York Times), "thoughtful and entertaining" (Los Angeles Times), "lyrical and heartfelt" (Publishers Weekly), "horrifying and human" (Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts), and "meaty and surprisingly sweet of heart" (, Stephen lives and teaches in Boulder, Colorado. He really likes werewolves and can eat, like, six boiled eggs.
