Lynda Cohen Loigman

Randy Matusow

Lynda Cohen Loigman grew up in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. She received a B.A. in English and American Literature from Harvard College and a law degree from Columbia Law School. Loigman practiced trusts and estates law in New York City for eight years before moving out of the city to raise her two children with her husband. She wrote "The Two-Family House" while she was a student of the Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence College. "The Two-Family House" was chosen by Goodreads as a best book of the month for March, 2016, and was a nominee for the Goodreads 2016 Choice Awards in Historical Fiction. Lynda's second novel, "The Wartime Sisters," will be published in winter, 2019.
