Read full description of the books:



Delft, XVII secolo, una casa nella zona protestante della città... Griet, la figlia di un decoratore di piastrelle, è in cucina, intenta a sistemare le verdure tritate. Sull’uscio, compaiono improvvisamente due figure: un uomo dagli occhi grigi come il mare e una donna che sembra portata dal vento, benché la giornata sia calma. Sono Johannes Vermeer, il celebre pittore, e sua moglie Katharina, gente ricca e influente, proveniente dal Quartiere dei Papisti. Griet ha sedici anni e quel giorno apprende dalla voce della madre il suo destino: andrà a servizio dei Vermeer per otto stuiver al giorno, dovrà fare le pulizie nell’atelier del pittore, e dovrà agire delicatamente senza spostare né urtare nulla. Romanzo che ci conduce la dove l’arte è divisa dai fantasmi della passione soltanto da una linea sottile – tra Vermeer e Griet si stabilisce un’intensa relazione fatta di sguardi, sospiri, frasi dette e non dette -, La ragazza con l’orecchino di perla ci offre alcune delle pagine più felici, nella narrativa contemporanea, sulla dedizione e sul coraggio femminile.

Read information about the author

Ebook La ragazza con l'orecchino di perla read Online! Born:
19 October 1962 in Washington, DC. Youngest of 3 children. Father was a photographer for The Washington Post.

Childhood:
Nerdy. Spent a lot of time lying on my bed reading. Favorite authors back then: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Madeleine L’Engle, Zilpha Keatley Snyder, Joan Aiken, Susan Cooper, Lloyd Alexander. Book I would have taken to a desert island: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.

Education:
BA in English, Oberlin College, Ohio, 1984. No one was surprised that I went there; I was made for such a progressive, liberal place.

MA in creative writing, University of East Anglia, Norwich, England, 1994. There’s a lot of debate about whether or not you can be taught to write. Why doesn’t anyone ask that of professional singers, painters, dancers? That year forced me to write all the time and take it seriously.

Geography:
Moved to London after graduating from Oberlin in 1984. I had studied for a semester in London and thought it was a great place, so came over for fun, expecting to go back to the US after 6 months to get serious. I’m still in London, and still not entirely serious. Even have dual citizenship – though I keep the American accent intact.

Family:
1 English husband + 1 English son + 1 tortoiseshell cat.

Career:
Before writing, was a reference book editor, working on encyclopedias about writers. (Yup, still nerdy.) Learned how to research and how to make sentences better. Eventually I wanted to fix my own sentences rather than others’, so I quit and did the MA.

Writing:
Talked a lot about becoming a writer as a kid, but actual pen to paper contact was minimal. Started writing short stories in my 20s, then began first novel, The Virgin Blue, during the MA year. With Girl With a Pearl Earring (written in 1998), I became a full-time writer, and have since juggled it with motherhood
