Ann Patchett

Ann Patchett is an American novelist and independent bookshop owner, whose works include State of Wonder and the multi-award winning Bel Canto. Prior to writing her first novel, The Patron Saint of Liars, in 1992, Patchett had had a number of pieces published in magazines and journals such as The Paris Review, The New York Times Magazine and Vogue. She was also a staff writer on the teen magazine, Seventeen, for nine years. Despite critical accolades, mainstream success eluded Patchett until 2001’s Bel Canto, a character study of a group of young terrorists and their hostages during a siege in a fictional South American country. Bel Canto won the Orange Prize (now the Women's Prize for Fiction) and the PEN/Faulkner Award for American fiction and raised Patchett’s profile dramatically. In 2010 she co-founded Parnassus Books in Nashville, Tennessee and has been a vocal campaigner for independent bookshops ever since. Her latest novel, The Dutch House, will be published in September 2019.

Rich in metaphor and flawless in tone, The Dutch House sees one of the world’s finest living novelists at the top of her game. Shimmering with melancholy, this extraordinary book takes a scalpel to family dynamics and the irretrievable loss of youthful pride. A novel of jewel-like beauty and emotional insight.
