Kort biografi
Jay Asher was born in Arcadia, California on September 30, 1975. He grew up in a family that encouraged all of his interests, from playing the guitar to his writing. He attended Cuesta College right after graduating from high school. It was here where he wrote his first two children’s books for a class called Children’s Literature Appreciation. At this point in his life, he had decided he wanted to become an elementary school teacher. He then transferred to California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo where he left his senior year in order to pursue his career as a serious writer. Throughout his life he worked in various establishments, including as a salesman in a shoe store and in libraries and bookstores. Many of his work experiences had an impact on some aspect of his writing.

He has published only one book to date, Thirteen Reasons Why, which was published in October 2007. He is currently working on his second Young Adult novel, and has written several picture books and screenplays. Thirteen Reasons Why has won several awards and has received five stars from Teen Book Review. It also has received high reviews from fellow authors such as Ellen Hopkins, Chris Crutcher, and Gordon Kormon.

Recensioner

Jag gillar verkligen berättargreppet, och Jay Asher hanterar det väl. Språket är bra och läsningen flyter på snabbt. Det finns ett driv i texten som gör att man hela tiden vill läsa vidare och höra nästa berättelse på Hannahs kassettband. Det handlar om alla de där mindre och större händelserna som till slut kan bli för mycket. En träffande skildring av tonårstillvaron.
