Tracy Chevalier

Fri 17 Nov / Quarterhouse

Tracy Chevalier talks about her novels and the many themes she has mined, from Vermeer to fossils, quilting to slavery, dwelling more particularly on her latest book, the powerful New Boy, a retelling of Othello set in a Washington DC playground in the 1970s. She is as much admired for her narratives as for her attention to detail and might share some secrets of the trade.

Tracy Chevalier is the author of nine novels, including the international bestseller Girl with a Pearl Earring. American by birth, British by geography, she lives in London. Her latest novel, New Boy is part of the Hogarth Shakespeare Project in which various writers take a Shakespeare play and write what Jeanette Winterson described as a "cover version".
