ABOUT THE BOOK

Jodi Picoults career began with the DC Comics Wonder Woman series, and she has since become one of the world's best known authors.Her first novel, Nineteen Minutes, shot to the number one position on the New York Times Bestsellers List when it was published in 2007, paving the way for the impressive body of work that has followed.

Picoult was born in Nesconset, Long Island, to two non-practising Jewish parents. Even at a very young age, Picoult demonstrated her love for writing and wrote a story titled "The Lobster Which Misunderstood." Aged thirteen years old, she moves from Nesconset to New Hampshire and continued to demonstrate her love for writing throughout her high school years.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Picoult requested that straps be added to Wonder Womans bustier, but her suggestion was politely turned down. Picoult then took a different angle to strengthening the character; she chose to endow her with a little more intelligence, and created stories that allowed Wonder Woman to rescue the guys, rather than being helped by them. When she left DC Comics, Picoult felt as though Wonder Woman was ". . . headed in the right direction.

Picoult's literary successes in novels appeared to dwindle for around a decade after she gave birth, but this was only due to her change in approach to the characters she wanted to represent. Picoult described herself as taking a more maternalistic and empathetic approach to those she wanted to write about, and it was from this point that she began researching her books intricately.

Picoult's first heartbreaking novel, Nineteen Minutes, tells the story of a child who goes on a nineteen minute rampage with a hand gun, killing his classmates. It was a brave and poignant attempt at capturing the hearts of America, as it reflected events that are rarely, but still too often, broadcast across news channels...

    Wrong

    First novel was not 19 Minutes. Perhaps Barnes and Nobles needs a proof reader to check facts before reprinting them.
