Author Biography

Thomas Lynch's essays, poems and stories have appeared in The Atlantic and Granta, The New York Times and Times of London, The New Yorker and Paris Review and elsewhere. The Undertaking was a finalist for the National Book Award; he is also the author of Bodies in Motion and at Rest, Still Life in Milford, Booking Passage, and Apparition & Late Fictions.

His work has been the subject of two film documentaries. PBS Frontline's "The Undertaking," aired nationwide in 2007, and won the 2008 Emmy Award for Arts and Culture Documentary. Cathal Black's film, "Learning Gravity," produced for the BBC, was featured at the 2008 Telluride Film Festival and the 6th Traverse City Film Festival in 2009 where it was awarded the Michigan Prize by Michael Moore.

Lynch lives in Milford, Michigan where he has been the funeral director since 1974, and in Moveen, Co. Clare, Ireland where he keeps an ancestral cottage.
