Rave Reviews for Niven's New Thornton Wilder Biography


Thornton Wilder By Penelope NivenAcclaimed biographer Penelope Niven's new Thornton Wilder biography has been steadily gaining steam as of late, spurred by an overwhelming number of positive reviews and heaps of media attention. Thornton Wilder: A Life gives an unprecedentedly intimate look into the life of the three-time Pulitzer Prize winner (Our Town, The Skin of Our Teeth, The Bridge of San Luis Rey), aided, in part, by Thornton's nephew and literary executor Tappan, who welcomed Niven with open arms, and unlocked stores of Thornton's personal artifacts never before released.
