Therese Anne Fowler is the author of five novels, including the New York Times and international best-seller "Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald," which has been adapted for television as the series "Z: The Beginning of Everything." Her sixth novel, currently titled "Edge Effects," is set to be released in early 2020.
Her newest novel is "A Well-Behaved Woman," a Gilded Age tale about the Vanderbilt family that centers on Alva Smith Vanderbilt Belmont, a Southern-born woman and future suffragette whose marriage into the Vanderbilt family launches the Vanderbilt dynasty as we know it. Alva, like the woman Therese turned the spotlight onto in her previous book, is so much more than popular culture makes her seem.
"A Well-Behaved Woman" is a finalist for the Southern Book Prize for fiction and has been named a Most Anticipated or Best Book of Fall 2018 by numerous publications, including Publishers Weekly, Good Housekeeping, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, People Magazine, BuzzFeed, and even Garden & Gun. The book is in development for TV by Sony Pictures Television.
Therese lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband, award-winning author John Kessel.
