Jodi Again!

  • Book Rating: 5/5

Listening to Part II now. This is Jodi's epic work on religion and so far it's a pretty good job, transcending the borders of traditional Judeo-Christian theology in a very humanized way.

Picoult, Jodi

Jodi Picoult, 41, is the bestselling author of fifteen novels: Songs of the Humpback Whale (1992), Harvesting the Heart (1994), Picture Perfect (1995); Mercy (1996), The Pact (1998); Keeping Faith (1999), Plain Truth (2000), Salem Falls (2001), Perfect Match (2002), Second Glance (2003), My Sister's Keeper (2004), Vanishing Acts (2005),The Tenth Circle (2006) and her newest novel, Nineteen Minutes, which debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list, and her newest novel, Change of Heart (2008)

Picoult studied creative writing with Mary Morris at Princeton, and had two short stories published in Seventeen magazine while still a student. Realism - and a profound desire to be able to pay the rent - led Picoult to a series of different jobs following her graduation: as a technical writer for a Wall Street brokerage firm, as a copywriter at an ad agency, as an editor at a textbook publisher, and as an 8th grade English teacher - before entering Harvard to pursue a master's in education. She married Tim Van Leer, whom she had known at Princeton, and it was while she was pregnant with her first child that she wrote her first novel, Songs of the Humpback Whale.

In 2003 she was awarded the New England Bookseller Award for Fiction. She has also been the recipient an Alex Award from the Young Adult Library Services Association, sponsored by the Margaret Alexander Edwards Trust and Booklist, one of ten books written for adults that have special appeal for young adults; the Book Browse Diamond Award for novel of the year; a lifetime achievement award for mainstream fiction from the Romance Writers of America; Cosmopolitan magazine’s ‘Fearless Fiction’ Award 2007; Waterstone’s Author of the Year in the UK, and a Vermont Green Mountain Book Award. Most recently, she wrote five issues of the Wonder Woman comic book series for DC Comics. Her books are translated into thirty four languages in thirty five countries. Two – The Pact and Plain Truth – were made into television movies; a third, The Tenth Circle, will air on Lifetime this summer. My Sister’s Keeper is currently in development at New Line Cinema, with Nick Cassavetes directing and Cameron Diaz starring.

She and Tim and their three children live in Hanover, New Hampshire with two Springer spaniels, two donkeys, two geese, three ducks, six chickens, and the occasional Holstein.
