Alumna Mary South '14 Announces Two-book Deal

June 22, 2018

Alumna Mary South '14 will have two books published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.


Her debut book will be a collection of stories, You Will Never Be Forgotten, about characters who escape their feelings of grief, rage and despair through technology.


Her second book, a novel, is set in a near future in which women begin to turn into household objects. It is narrated by a woman who observes these changes as she works in a hospice for the ultra-wealthy.


The two-book deal was completed by Cynthia Cannell at Cynthia Cannell Literary Agency.


South announced the exciting news on Twitter: "It's an incredible experience to write for years and then receive this news," she wrote. "I will be forever grateful."
