Offill's 2020 novel, Weather, is the story of confronting, both directly and less so, looming climate catastrophe . The book was described as “emotional, planetary, and very turbulent, “ by the New York Times, “utterly exhilarating in its wit and intelligence” by the Boston Globe, and “darkly funny and urgent” by NPR. Her preceding novel, Dept. of Speculation, was named one of the 10 best books of 2014 by the New York Times Book Review, The New Yorker, the Boston Globe, and many others. It was shortlisted for the Folio Prize, the Pen Faulkner Award, and the International Dublin Award. She is also the author Last Things, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and a finalist for the L.A. Times First Book Award
