About the Author


Nathaniel Hawthorne s (1804 1864) ability to weave worlds of plaintive beauty is somewhat at odds with his family background. His ancestry, which stems back to the Salem witch trials of 1692, contains a bloody, judgmental history used to dramatic effect in his novels and short stories. For Hawthorne, the sins of the father being passed on through subsequent generations was a haunting image, which he believed shadowed his own family.

Rosemary Mahoney is the author of For the Benefit of Those Who See: Dispatches from the World of the Blind(January 2014). She is also the author of Whoredom in Kimmage, a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist; Down the Nile: Alone in a Fisherman s Skiff; a New York Times Notable Book, A Likely Story: One Summer with Lillian Hellman; and two other books. She was a 2011 Guggenheim fellow and is the recipient of a Whiting Writers Award.
