Literary Birthday – 15 September – Jesse Andrews

Happy Birthday, Jesse Andrews, born 15 September 1982.


  1. One thing I’ve learned about people is that the easiest way to get them to like you is to shut up and let them do the talking.
  2. You’re just going to make the best thing you can make and everything else takes care of itself. That’s craft.
  3. The best ideas are always the simplest.
  4. This book probably makes it seem like I hate myself and everything I do. But that’s not totally true. I mostly just hate every person I’ve ever been. I’m actually fine with myself right now.

Jesse Andrews is an American novelist and screenwriter. He is the author of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and The Haters. He adapted Me and Earl and The Dying Girl for film.
