Author Info
Barbara Kingsolver
Barbara Kingsolver grew up in rural Kentucky in a family that encouraged reading and nature study, but strongly discouraged TV-watching. She studied biology at DePauw University, then spent a few years working in Europe. Curious about the American Southwest, she came home to settle in Tucson, where she eventually pursued graduate studies in ecology at the University of Arizona. After graduate school she worked as a scientific writer and a freelance journalist and, eventually, became a full-time writer. Her first novel, THE BEAN TREES, was published in 1988 to much critical acclaim, and won awards from the American Library Association, PEN, and the American Booksellers Association, among others. In addition to fiction, Kingsolver has written articles on social and environmental topics.
"You'll treasure 'Animal Dreams.' A beautiful, memorable novel full of scenes and images that linger in the mind."
"Rich, complex, witty....This is a sweet book, full of bitter pain; a beautiful weaving of the light and the dark. This one will be with us for a long time."
"'Animal Dreams' is a novel that feels closer to the truth about modern lives than anything I've read in a long time....An astonishing book that ought to put Barbara Kingsolver in the first ranks of fiction writers."
"Kingsolver proves the human heart with uncommon wisdom. 'Animal Dreams' is a gracefully written, large-spirited novel. Anchored on the earth, it dares to soar into the ethereal."
