Nancy Willard (1936–2017) grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She was the author of two novels, seven books of stories and essays, and twelve books of poetry, including The Sea at Truro (2012). A winner of the Devins Memorial Award, she received NEA grants in both fiction and poetry. Her book Water Walker was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and her picture book A Visit to William Blake’s Inn was the first volume of poetry to receive the Newbery Medal, the country’s highest honor for children’s writing.
“[A] luminous first novel.” —Anne Tyler
“Moves freely between the mundane and the metaphysical . . . Willard creates pictures of daily life so precisely observed that they leave after-images in the reader’s mind.” —The New York Times
“Written with spirit and in a luminous prose that is a pleasure to read . . . Willard’s technical virtuosity is like an array of pitches. And in this book, she throws a perfect game.” —The Houston Post
