About the Author:

Artist and writer Natalie Babbitt (1932-2016) is the award-winning author of the modern classic Tuck Everlasting, The Eyes of the Amaryllis, Kneeknock Rise and many other brilliantly original books for young people. She began her career in 1966 as the illustrator of The Forty-ninth Magician, written by her husband. When her husband became a college president and no longer had time to collaborate, Babbitt tried her hand at writing. Her first novel, The Search for Delicious, established her gift for writing magical tales with profound meaning. Kneeknock Rise earned her a Newbery Honor Medal, and in 2002, Tuck Everlasting was adapted into a major motion picture. Natalie Babbitt lived in Hamden, CT.

Review:

“An expertly turned artifact of a story, which is not to deny its human sympathy and penetrating edge.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Mrs. Babbitt creates a plausible world and peoples it with believable humans, but the most satisfaction comes from the pleasure of her company as she effortlessly takes the reader in velvet-gloved hand to point out life's coincidences and near misses.” ―George A. Woods, The New York Times

“It is a totally satisfying literary experience, and I fervently hope adult readers will discover it.” ―Norma Klein, The Nation


Herbert Rowbarge has . . . an almost folktale-like tone and plot. Never mind that it contains its share of Buicks and bridge parties; it still possesses the hushed, concentrated, stripped quality of a legend. And like a legend, it draws us in. It’s spellbinding.” ―Anne Tyler, The New York Times Book Review


“It’s been a while since I’ve been so enamored of a book, likening it to falling in love for the very first time. When I am not with this book I am miserable, longing to return to it; it is often in my thoughts. I am constantly talking about it, extolling it to anyone who will listen. The object of such literary passion? A stunning novel entitled Herbert Rowbarge.” ―Barbara Karlin, The Los Angeles Times
