Gillian Flynn (foto) é crítica de TV da revista Entertainment Weekly. Seu livro de estréia (e por enquanto único), Na Própria Carne (Sharp Objects, Ed. Rocco, 2008), um mix de romance policial e thriller psicológico, venceu os concursos CWA New Blood e Ian Fleming Steel Daggers.
“When my mom took me to the library to check out my first ‘grown-up’ book, it was by Agatha Christie. I read all her stuff; I became obsessed with her.” Another early favorite was a writer who is now a colleague at Entertainment Weekly magazine, where she is a TV critic: Stephen King.
