American novelist notable for her 2014 debut novel, California, which rose to prominence as a result of a public dispute between comedian Stephen Colbert and online publisher Amazon. The dispute occurred after Colbert urged his viewers on two successive nights of his talk show to pre-order copies of the novel from his own publisher, the Hachette Book Group.
The novel was subsequently reviewed by national newspapers including the Boston Globe, Washington Post, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and others. The New York Times suggested Lepucki had, in effect, "won the literary Lotto". The San Jose Mercury News described Lepucki as a "terrific writer." According to one report, Lepucki signed 10,000 copies of her novel over the span of three days. Lepucki is an instructor with the UCLA Extension Writers' Program. Her fiction has appeared in McSweeney's, Los Angeles Times Magazine, Narrative Magazine, Meridian and elsewhere.
Her second novel, Woman No. 17, was released in May 2017.
