Timeline of Amanda Filipacchi


In August 2013, Filipacchi sold her latest novel, The Unfortunate Importance of Beauty, to Norton. According to the publisher, the novel deals with two women going to elaborate lengths to find love. It was named on Bustle’s list of “12 of the Most Anticipated Books of 2015, aka the Titles We Can’t Get Our Hands On Soon Enough” and the Huffington Post’s “2015 Books We Can’t Wait To Read”.

In an April 2013 op-ed for The New York Times, Filipacchi expressed concerns about sexism regarding Wikipedia’s classification of American novelists, as well as female novelists from other countries, after she noticed multiple editors moving female writers out of the general category of “American novelists” and into a subcategory for “American women novelists”. She described it as a “small, easily fixable thing … that make[s] it harder and slower for women to gain equality in the literary world”, and added that “[p]eople who go to Wikipedia to get ideas for whom to hire, or honor, or read, and look at that list of ‘American Novelists’ for inspiration … might simply use that list without thinking twice about it.” The op-ed spurred an outcry from feminists and other commentators, who echoed her concerns about sexism and the perceived minimization of female novelists on the site. Filipacchi stated in a follow-up piece that editors had targeted her Wikipedia biography page in retaliation for her criticism. Andrew Leonard of Salon described this as “revenge editing” and supported his description of the event by quoting combative remarks about Filipacchi made by the primary user involved, who was later revealed to be writer Robert Clark Young.

Filipacchi later wrote an additional article in The Atlantic, rebutting media stories that attributed the recategorization of female novelists to the work of a single editor, and listed seven different users who were responsible for recategorizing the seventeen women writers mentioned in her op-ed. In July 2013, she wrote a personal essay for The Wall Street Journal, which more humorously described the aftermath of the controversy, discussing how she became engrossed in discussions on Wikipedia and criticism site Wikipediocracy.


Filipacchi’s second and third novels, Vapor (1999) and Love Creeps (2005, a novel about obsessive love and stalking respectively), were also translated into multiple languages. In 2005, Filipacchi was invited to participate in the 2005 Saint-Amour literary festival, a 10-city tour through Belgium.


In 1992, when Filipacchi was 24, a time shortly before her graduation, her agent, Melanie Jackson, sold Nude Men to Nan Graham at Viking Press. The novel was later translated into ten languages and was anthologized in The Best American Humor 1994 (published by Simon & Schuster).


Filipacchi was born in Paris, and was educated in France (where she attended the American School of Paris in St. Cloud) and in the U.S. She is the daughter of former model Sondra Peterson and Daniel Filipacchi, chairman emeritus of Hachette Filipacchi Médias. She has been writing since the age of thirteen and completed three unpublished novels in her teenage years. She has been living in New York since she was 17. She attended Hamilton College, from which she graduated with a BA in Creative Writing. At age 20, she tried her hand at non-fiction writing at Rolling Stone magazine. In 1990, Filipacchi enrolled in Columbia University’s MFA fiction writing program, where she wrote a master’s thesis which she later turned into her first published novel, Nude Men.
