Werewolves Within News
Me watching the filming on the monitor
Thanks for all the love for Werewolves Within. It's in theaters and VOD--and the response has been overwhelming. Written by yours truly, directed by Josh Ruben. The movie stars Sam Richardson (Veep), Milana Vayntrub (This is Us) and a comedic ensemble so talented they make everything they touched wonderful. Check out some of the interviews I gave with Josh. And thanks for watching.
Talking Werwolves Within
All of Wolff’s experiences funnel into this buoyant memoir, which is rich in detail but never feels overembellished...the tone manages to be light and triumphant because of the hilarious child-goggles Wolff wears while spinning her tales. Grade—A
Wolff's storytelling borderlines on brilliance, and indeed rises above that line... To a humorous and often touching effect, Wolff replays a journey than not all of the members of her family were willing to take.
Mishna Wolff’s I’m Down (St. Martin’s Press) is an
authentically funny, truly transcendent work that
makes other, sorry-voiced memoirs by a certain more
privileged class of writer pale—pun intended—by comparison.
Mishna Wolff started as a comedian and live storyteller. Her bestselling, critically-acclaimed memoir I’m Down is taught at high schools and colleges throughout America and sold at the Northwest African-American Museum and the Nobel Peace Museum in Oslo, Norway. She is a contributor to NPR, an alumna of the Sundance Screenwriters Lab and the Sundance Episodic Lab, and a recent recipient of the Indian Paintbrush fellowship and the Ubisoft Women's Fellowship. Her feature adaptation of Ubisoft’s Werewolves Within is coming to a theater near you in June 2021!
