Flynn, Gillian (1971-)

Gillian Flynn is an American author and screenwriter.  As a child she was an avid reader of comic books and as an adult collaborated with illustrator Dave Gibbons and wrote a comic books story 'Masks'.

Flynn’s third novel, Gone Girl, was an international sensation and a runaway hit that has spent more than one hundred weeks on the New York Times bestseller lists.

People love talking, and I have never been a huge talker. I carry on an inner monologue, but the words often don't reach my lips.

Flynn, Gillian. Gone Girl. Phoenix, 2014.
