When Lily Brett was 18, she was hired as a writer for a rock music magazine in Australia, where she grew up. They hadn’t asked her about her skill level or interest in writing at the interview. By contrast, they asked her if she had a car. She did, and she started the next day. Lily interviewed scores of musicians, including musicians who became legends, such as Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Mick Jagger.

Today, Lily Brett lives and writes in New York City. She is a prolific novelist, essayist, and poet. She has written seven novels, four collections of essays, and eight volumes of poetry. Her work frequently explores the lives of Holocaust survivors and their children, the experiences of modern women, women’s relationship with food, and life in New York City. Her 2001 novel, Too Many Men, was an international bestseller. Her 2014 novel, Lola Bensky, won France's Prix Médicis Etranger.

Lily Brett has lived in New York City with her husband and three children since 1989.
