Nathan Hill wrote The Nix over the course of ten years. He couldn't predict that his debut novel would be published just at the time when what was happening in America seemed eerily yet humorously similar to his book. The Nix is a satire with plot lines that look at politics, family relationships, and writing. The novel is a New York Times Bestseller, and has been named the #1 Book of the Year by audible and Entertainment Weekly. It has also been named one of the best books of the year by the NY Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and NPR. Publication rights have been sold in 16 countries and recently, The Nix has been optioned for a television series with J.J. Abrams and Meryl Streep attached.
Hill is a native of Iowa but now lives in Florida with his wife. He no longer teaches college as he is aiming to give full time writing a real go. His book has drawn comparisons to John Irving, Tom Wolfe, Thomas Pynchon, and even Charles Dickens.
