I'm Nova Ren Suma. I wrote the YA novels 17 & GONE and IMAGINARY GIRLS (both out now from Dutton/Penguin). And as we speak I'm writing a new novel, THE WALLS AROUND US, coming Spring 2015 from Algonquin YR.

Here's my blog: distraction99.com. And here's my author website: novaren.com.

When I contacted Colson Whitehead, the MacArthur-genius-award-winning author who last year released “Zone One,” a literary novel about a zombie takeover of Manhattan — my message to him included the words “literary” and “genre” — he replied politely that he’d “rather shoot myself in the face” than have another discussion about the difference between one category of literature and another.

“Other people’s labels,” Whitehead answered. “Other people’s hang-ups.”
