Charlotte Rogan graduated from Princeton University in 1975. She worked at various jobs, mostly in the fields of architecture and engineering, before teaching herself to write and staying home to bring up triplets. Her childhood experiences among a family of sailors and the discovery of an old criminal law text provided inspiration for The Lifeboat, her first novel. After many years in Dallas and a year in Johannesburg, she and her husband now live in Connecticut. The Lifeboat is being translated into 18 languages.
Charlotte Rogan recommends
I Love You Too Much (2018)
"An atmospheric deep dive into longing, betrayal, and the shattered illusions of youth."
The Garden Party (2018)
Grace Dane Mazur
"An overgrown garden, two families with nothing in common, six couples in various stages of love and dissolution, a bride and groom determined to disrupt their own wedding, a pond of giant fish. In this unique and absorbing novel, Grace Dane Mazur gives us that 'essential thing' Virginia Woolf taught us to look for in fiction, but we don't often find."
