BIO

An avowed tomboy all her life, Fowler became one of the first girls in the U.S. to play Little League baseball, thanks to the implementation of Title IX legislation and her father’s willingness to fight on her behalf. But this passion for baseball was exceeded only by her love of books. After an intensive five-year stint that included one ify-but-completed novel, followed by graduate school, a few short-fiction awards, an MFA in creative writing, teaching undergraduates creative writing, and a second novel, Fowler was on the path to a writing career.

 

However, it was after three more novels before she began to grasp Literature properly – resulting in her NYT bestseller, Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald. Fowler felt compelled to write a story that should bring a maligned, talented, and troubled woman the justice she deserves, instead of her reputation as “F. Scott Fitzgerald’s crazy, disruptive wife.”

Z:
A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald
St. Martin's Press

Who is Zelda, other than the wife of a famous—sometimes infamous—husband? How can she forge her own identity while fighting her demons and Scott’s, too? With brilliant insight and imagination, Therese Anne Fowler brings us Zelda’s irresistible story as she herself might have told it.

SPEECHES

Relating to Zelda in the 21st Century: The recent turn towards traditionalist conservatism by many Americans gives young women more things in common with Zelda than one would have imagine in the past. Women continue to be underestimated and overshadowed in both the personal and professional spheres, and they struggle with balancing devotion to a partner’s ambitions and the pursuit of their own.

Discovering Zelda Fitzgerald: Fowler talks about lesser known facets of Zelda’s life, for instance, her relationship with ballet, a form of expression integral to helping her cope with her marital difficulties and mental illness.
