Week of March 16 | Jennifer Haigh

This week's guest is Jennifer Haigh. Ms. Haigh won the PEN/Hemingway award for best first fiction for her novel MRS. KIMBLE in 2001. The story chronicles the lives of three women married to same the same man, Ken Kimble.

Her second novel, BAKER TOWERS, was published by William Morrow in January, 2005.  It is the story of a coal mining town in western Pennsylvania; beginning in 1944 and ending with the beginning of the Vietnam War. 

Ms. Haigh's prose is pitch-perfect, and her stories and characters are vivid and memorable. I enjoyed both novels, and I believe Ms. Haigh is well on her way to becoming one of our country's most important new voices in fiction.

Ms. Haigh will be appearing as a guest of The Thurber House on Tuesday, March 15, 2005, at The Columbus School For Girls. The reading will start at 7:30 p.m. You can find out more about her appearance and The Thurber House on the homepage of my website.
