"Soon enough it will be spring, and the magnolia blossoms will come out, and it will be too much beauty to bear. Isn’t life heartbreaking enough without magnolia blooms once a year making our hearts explode?"
"This is a very funny and sad and beautiful first novel, and the last line made my heart leap with joy, but don't skip ahead!!"
—Jonathan Ames, author of Wake Up, Sir!
Hey Harry Hey Matilda is a novel with pictures about love, life, lies, and growing up.
Out now, from Doubleday.
“Endearing and indecent… Creative and funny… [Hulin’s] writing excels in its ability to make the twins appealing. The email-exchange format leaves the reader feeling closely connected to the characters… Humorous and intimate… A novel as remarkably witty as it is frightful.”
"Hilarious... Hulin’s razor-sharp and sardonic writing propels this page-turner to a resolution that is equal parts happy and disturbing. Fans of recent tragicomic epistolary novels like Maria Semple’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette and Cecilia Ahern’s Love, Rosie will find much to enjoy here." —Booklist
“Laugh-out-loud funny….Visual cues seem integral to Hulin’s project—Matilda illustrates feelings with diagrams, and photographs separate each section…. an entertaining caper and a thought-provoking look at family, memory, and the complexities of love.”
"This quick read can easily be devoured in one sitting, and a surprise twist will leave readers waiting for Hulin's next work."
"[A] charming epistolary novel for the digital age... With wit and finely tuned insights into the pressures of love, family and society, the author creates vibrant characters filled with palpable longings." —Kim Hubbard, People
