Alice Hoffman wrote her first novel, Property Of, when she was 21 and a Mirrielees Fellow at the Stanford University Creative Writing Center. She has since written over 30 books, including the novels Blackbird House, The Red Garden, and The Dovekeepers, books for young adults, such as Aquamarine and Green Witch, and several books for children. Aquamarine and the novel Practical Magic were both made into films, and she was the screenwriter for the 1983 film Independence Day. Her 1997 novel Here on Earth was selected for Oprah’s Book Club. Alice's latest novel Faithful was released in November. Hoffman’s “trademark alchemy” (USA Today) and her ability to write about the “delicate balance between the everyday world and the extraordinary” (WBUR) make this an unforgettable story. Alice Hoffman spins hope from heartbreak in this beautifully crafted, profoundly moving novel.
