Week of March 16 | Jennifer
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.
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.
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
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.
