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

In The Press


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. GradeA

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.
