From the author of the poignant and provocative debut Anything Could Happen comes another hard-hitting exploration of love and friendship. 

How do you deal with a hole in your life? Do you grieve? Do you drink? Do you make out with your best friend? Do you turn to poets and pop songs? Do you question everything? Do you lash out? Do you turn the lashing inward? If you're Avery, you do all of these things. And you write it all down in an attempt to understand what's happened — and is happening — to you. I Felt a Funeral, In My Brain is an astonishing novel about navigating death and navigating life, at a time when the only map you have is the one you can draw for yourself. 

Will Walton grew up in a small town in rural Georgia and often found himself helping out on his grandparent’s small farm. Currently, he lives a few hours away from his hometown, in Athens, Georgia, where he went to college. When he’s not writing, there’s a good chance you’ll find him at his other job: a bookseller at the Avid Bookshop.





Born and raised in the DC Metro Area, Kosoko Jackson has worked in non-profit communications for the past four years. In 2019, he will be attending NYU to receive his Masters in Digital Strategy & Crisis Communications. His debut, A PLACE FOR WOLVES, an #ownvoices historical thriller, will come out in 2019, published by SourceBooks Fire.
