Susan Minot was born in Boston in 1956 and now lives in New York City. Monkeys, her first novel, was published in 1986, for which she won the prestigious French award the Prix Femina Etranger. In 1989 she published a collection of short stories, Lust & Other Stories, and in 1992 her second novel, Folly.From Library Journal:
Lillian Eliot is the product of Brahmin Boston, whose traditions and socially correct attitudes have been instilled in her. She has been cast in the mold. Yet at times she longs to break free, to be someone different. Lillian sees that her choice of a husband will determine her future, but she finds herself most comfortable with what is familiar and marries accordingly. Later in life she is again faced with the choice--to break free or stay. In making her choice, Lillian finally discovers herself. This is a book of the inner workings of the heart and the mind. In elegant, eloquent prose, Minot captures the essence and the impact of life's decisions. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/1/92.
