Jane Hamilton is not only a novelist; she has spent a great deal of time at a working orchard in Wisconsin--and has said that both aspects of her life are important to her. A voracious reader as a teenager, she has always, as she says, read for "a writer's wisdom, his invention, his grace, his penetrating gaze, his fluid sentences, his sense of humor." Her own fiction has received many awards. Her first novel, THE BOOK OF RUTH, was awarded the 1989 PEN/Hemingway Foundation Award for Best First Fiction, and several of her subsequent books have been bestsellers.
