Alice Hoffman

Alice Hoffman has been called “America’s literary heir to the Brothers Grimm,” and her luminous and remarkable “fables of the everyday” have enchanted readers since the publication of her first novel, Property Of, in 1977. More than 30 years later, with numerous acclaimed and bestselling novels including Practical Magic and The Dovekeepers, as well as two short story collections and many books for young adults, Hoffman continues to seduce readers into her vividly imagined world. Her books have been translated into more than 20 different languages, and her short fiction and nonfiction have appeared in The New York Times, The Boston Globe Magazine, and many other magazines.
