Emma Straub is the New York Times best-selling author of This Time Tomorrow, All Adults Here, The Vacationers, and Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures. Elin and Tim dig in deep on being the daughter of novelist Peter Straub, growing up in New York City, her writing education and origin story, debut novels, time travel (Elin, Tim, and Emma travel back to their 16 year old bedrooms and bookshelves). Emma discusses the reason for writing her most recent novel This Time Tomorrow as juggling her job as a novelist and owning 2 Books Are Magic bookstore locations with her husband in New York. Since the recording of this podcast, Emma has received a 2024 Guggenheim Fellowship. Congratulations, Emma!
