Author Info
Jane Langton
Jane Langton attended Wellesley College and the University of Michigan, where she earned a B.S and an M.A., and Radcliffe College, where she earned a second M.A. From 1950 to 1956, she worked for the public television station WGBH in Boston. She is best known for her Massachusetts-based mysteries featuring Thoreau scholar Homer Kelley, who first appeared in "Natural Enemy" (1982). Her mysteries are devoid of explicit violence and center more on themes of consequence, nature, and morality. Certain editions also include pen-and-ink drawings, which she illustrated herself.
"Langston's superbly told story reaches beyond the confines of its finely tempered plot and leaves an echo that is at once touching and challenging."
