Tod Wodicka (born May 30, 1976) is an American author who grew up in Queensbury, New York and currently lives in Berlin, Germany. He graduated from the University of Manchester in the UK. His critically acclaimed first novel, All Shall Be Well; And All Shall Be Well; And All Manner of Things Shall Be Well was published in the UK and the Netherlands in December 2007, in the United States in January 2008, and has been translated into German, Spanish and Romanian.[1][2] The novel was short-listed for the 2008 Believer Book Award.[3]

All Shall Be Well tells the story of Burt Hecker, a medieval re-enactor from upstate New York who travels to Prague to find his estranged son Tristan. The book is a darkly comic story about Burt's devotion to another time and his doomed attempts at coming to terms with his own history.[4][5]

Tod Wodicka's non-fiction has appeared in The Guardian, Tank, New Statesman, The National, and Granta. He is currently at work on his second novel, The Household Spirit, for Pantheon Books (US) and Jonathan Cape (UK). "The Household Spirit" is about sleep paralysis.
