Chandler Klang Smith

Chandler Klang Smith’s new novel The Sky Is Yours (Hogarth/Crown, 2018) was listed by Entertainment Weekly as a “Best New Book.” Tor.com and Lit Hub compared it favorably with Infinite Jest, The Wall Street Journal called it “mesmeric… a great and disturbing debut,” Locus wrote, “It’s weird and it’s creative and it is full of heart,” and NPR described it as “a wickedly satirical synthesis that underlines just how fractured our own realities can be during periods of fear, unrest, inequality and instability.” Chandler holds an MFA in creative writing from Columbia University, and has served twice as a juror for the Shirley Jackson Awards. She has worked in book publishing and as a ghostwriter, and she now lives and teaches in New York City.
