Amy Koppelman wrote "A Mouthful of Air" 17 years ago. She also wrote and directed the film, which hits theaters this week.

The novel, A Mouthful of Air by Amy Koppelman was first published 17 years ago. It was re-released this year by Two Dollar Radio, in anticipation of a new movie from Sony pictures, adapted for the screen and directed by Koppelman. The story is about a young woman named Julie who, after the birth of her child, struggles with depression and mental illness.

Amy Koppelman is the writer and director of the film, A Mouthful of Air, which was adapted from her book with the same title, re-released by Two Dollar Radio.
