Alison Lurie
Alison Lurie was born in Chicago but raised in the suburbs of New York. She attended Radcliffe College, graduating in 1947, and in 1948 she married Jonathan Peale Bishop, a professor. They had three children: John, Jeremy, and Joshua, and were divorced in 1985. Lurie taught English at Cornell University for many years before becoming a full-time novelist. She won a Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1985 for "Foreign Affairs". She was made a member of the Academy of Arts & Letters in 1989.
Praise
"Alison Lurie is not what anyone would call a 'nice' writer. Indeed, it is because of her inspired crankiness, her resistance to cant and hypocrisy, that I relish her elegant, occasionally savage novels...In her fiction, Ms. Lurie is often cutting, but never heartless."
From the Publisher
Editors Note The author of The War Between the Tates and the Pulitzer prize-winningForeign Affairs now brings her irresistible wit to the ghost story.In nine spooky tales, Alison Lurie writes of women haunted by ghosts both literal and metaphorical: A woman about to marry Mr. Right is visited by the spirit of his first wife; a dead fiancé haunts a foreign service officer every time she has an intimate moment with another man; the ghost of a girl in a Halloween costume disconcerts the perfect housewife. A secretary on a diet begins to see obese people everywhere she looks; a self-conscious poet is shadowed by her intrusive doppelganger; and a capricious, malevolent spirit seems to have inhabited an acquisitive matron?s prized piece of furniture.Delightfully strange and beautifully told, these nine tales show Alison Lurie at her luminous best.
