Margaret Malone – a self-described introvert with a penchant to believe everything will, at some point, “go horribly wrong” – turned to writing as a way to open herself to the world.  

The world is luckier for it.  

Malone’s debut book, “People Like You,” holds a mirror up to everyday life, and uses distorted lighting to show us another picture.

This collection of short stories is dark and humorous, and explores how small decisions – often based in boredom and curiosity – can greatly change the human condition.  

Malone spoke on OPB’s Weekend Edition about writing “People Like You,” and how her writing acts as a way to tell the world what’s really going on with her.
