Jonathan Tropper (born February 19, 1970) is an American writer and an adjunct faculty member at Manhattanville College.Tropper was born in the Riverdale section of New York City. He studied English as an undergraduate and received a master’s degree in creative writing at New York University, after which he spent eight years running a Manhattan-based company that manufactured displays for jewelry companies.
He wrote at night and on weekends, ultimately publishing his first novel, Plan B, which attracted the attention of an agent, allowing him to leave his job and become a full-time writer. Four of Tropper's five books have been optioned at auction within a week of publication (The Book of Joe, How to Talk to a Widower, Everything Changes and This Is Where I Leave You).
The themes of his books appear to stem from his personal experiences: they deal with topics such as being single, growing up, getting married, being married, getting divorced, and living in suburbia. Tropper's hometown of New Rochelle in Westchester County, New York, is a main source of inspiration when creating the characters and settings in his books..
