Mary Beth Keane - Fever


Everyone has heard of “Typhoid Mary” — but few know much about the woman who worked in New York as a cook at the turn of the century and unknowingly infected her clients with typhoid fever. In Fever ($26.00), critically-acclaimed novelist and recipient of the esteemed “5 Under 35” designation from the National Book Foundation Mary Beth Keane imagines the life of this courageous, headstrong, vilified young immigrant and finds sympathy, pluck, stubbornness, a great capacity for cooking, and love. 

Mary Beth Keane was born in New York City to Irish parents. She attended Barnard College and the University of Virginia, where she received an MFA in Fiction. Author of The Walking People, she lives in Pearl River, New York, with her husband and their two sons.
