About the Author

Paula McLain received an MFA in poetry from the University of Michigan and has been awarded fellowships from Yaddo, the MacDowell Colony, and the National Endowment for the Arts. She is the author of two collections of poetry, as well as a memoir, Like Family. Her novels include The Paris Wife and Circling the Sun. She lives in Cleveland with her family.


Paula McLain cements herself as THE writer of historical fictional memoir with CIRCLING THE SUN, giving vivid voice to Beryl Markham, a singular, extraordinary woman whose name we all know -- and whose story we don't. In a brilliant move, McLain hardly focuses at all on the trans-Atlantic flight that made the aviator so famous, choosing instead to explore what happened before: Markham's unorthodox childhood in Kenya, a failed marriage, and a star-crossed love affair with Denys Finch Hatton. The result? In McLain's confident hands, Markham crackles to life, and we readers truly understand what made a woman so far ahead of her time believe she had the power to soar. - Jodi Picoult, #1 NYT Bestselling Author of LEAVING TIMESeductive . . . we enjoy nights awash with absinthe in the giddy company of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein - Daily Mail on The Paris WifeMcLain's beautifully imagined novel is a worthy addition to the Hemingway canon. It is sharp, unsparing and delivered in a pared-down prose that the great man himself would have applauded - Sunday Telegraph on The Paris Wife
