Alina Simone is writer based in New York City whose books include the essay collection 'You Must Go and Win' and the novel 'Note to Self,' both published by Faber and Faber. Born in Ukraine and raised in Massachusetts, Simone spent almost a decade as a singer on the indie rock circuit before coming to the attention of an editor who heard her music on Pandora and contacted her out of the blue, suggesting she write a book. Her work has since appeared in The New York Times, New York Times Magazine, Esopus, The Los Angeles Review, the Wall Street Journal online and McSweeney's Internet Tendency.
