Anita Shreve started her writing career as a journalist and her award-winning short stories and non-fiction have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Cosmopolitan and Esquire. Shreve travelled to Nairobi, Kenya, where she lived for three years, working as a journalist for an African magazine. Anita is the author of fourteen previous acclaimed novels such as The Weight of Water, The Pilot's Wife, Light on Snow, A Wedding in December, Body Surfing and Testimony. She lives in Massachusetts. Publishing to coincide with her visit, the $19.99 Abacus paperback edition of her latest instant classic RESCUE.

This book is why I love Anita Shreve: her prose is so flawlessly disciplined and elegant; the characters seem too real to be made out of words and the story she unfolds is gripping, fiercely intelligent and deeply moving. Rescue is a literary novel for those ruled by the heart’  Augusten Burroughs
