About the Author

Lisa Alther is the bestselling author of five novels, among them the critically acclaimed Kinflicks, and a family memoir, Kinfolks: Falling Off the Family Tree. She was born in Kingsport, Tennessee, in 1944, one of five children in a close-knit family influenced by both its Southern and “Yankee” roots. After attending Wellesley College and working in book publishing, she moved to Vermont, where she began to write and raise her daughter. Alther currently divides her time among Tennessee, Vermont, and New York City.


What People are Saying About This

Blanche McCrary Boyd

"The promise of Lisa Alter's first novel, Kin Flicks, is fullfilled in her fifth, Five Minutes in Heave, which explores the complexities of lesbianism with an extraordinary sexual and emotional maturity. At the end, I felt like shouting hurrah."

Florence King

"Nobody can do a personal quet novel like Lisa Alter. Her new heroine is so consistently likeable and interesting that I found myself wishing she would turn up at my doorstep."

Rita Mae Brown

"Five Minutes in Heaven is a little bit of heaven."
