Lili Wright is the author of Dancing with the Tiger, a literary thriller set in Mexico, which Putnam Penguin will publish July 12, 2016, and the travel memoir Learning to Float, which The Washington Post named one of its “Best Summer Reads.” Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Newsweek, Down East, The Cincinnati Review, The Normal School, Cream City Review, and many other publications. She has lived a year in Paris, a year in Italy, and two years in Mexico—and now mixes all three languages together. When not traveling, she teaches English at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, where she lives with her family in a yellow Victorian house that always needs repair. Dancing with the Tiger is her first novel.
