She lives in northern California.
Gripping family saga. The phrase "a great novelist at the height of her powers" is so overused, but for once here it really is true. * The Times * Phenomenally powerful . . . Her cast is big, and growing all the time, but Smiley has a remarkable grip on all her characters . . . the third instalment can't come soon enough. * Guardian * There is a great deal to enjoy, and it's a novel in which many readers will happily lose themselves. * Scotsman * Here is one of America's leading novelists writing at the height, breadth and width of her powers. Magnificent. * Daily Mail *
