Nonfiction storyteller Stacy Schiff won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for her “monumental” (The Boston Globe) biography Vera (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov), a narrative of the 52-year marriage of the legendary writer and his even more vivid wife. She is also the author of A Great Improvisation: Franklin, France, and the Birth of America, the Pulitzer Prize finalist Saint-Exupéry, and Cleopatra: A Life. An account of the first great American mystery, The Witches unveils the fantastical true story of the accusations and trials that led to 20 executions and shaped the character of our future nation.
