[FBC14] Mariah MacCarthy, author of Squad

“This is the kind of book that, had I read it as a teenager, could’ve been a game-changer.” – Mariah MacCarthy


Mariah MacCarthy is a nonbinary creatrix and an award-winning writer, performer, and birth mother. They’ve written for BuzzFeed, Yes! magazine, LOOK magazine, The Brooklyn Rail, and others. Their plays have been performed all over the world, and the New York Times called their immersive party play Mrs. Mayfield’s Fifth-Grade Class of ’93 20-Year Reunion “a lot of fun.” They live in Astoria with their cat, Sophie. Squad is their first novel.
