Wally Lamb (born October 17, 1950) is an American author known as the writer of the novels She’s Come Undone and I Know This Much Is True, both of which were selected for Oprah’s Book Club. He was the director of the Writing Center at Norwich Free Academy in Norwich from 1989 to 1998 and has taught Creative Writing in the English Department at the University of Connecticut. Lamb began writing in 1981, the year he became a first-time father. Lamb’s first published stories were short fictions that appeared in Northeast, a Sunday magazine of the Hartford Courant. “Astronauts,” published in The Missouri Review in 1989, won the Missouri Review William Peden Prize and became widely anthologized. His first novel, She’s Come Undone, was followed six years later by I Know This Much Is True, a story about identical twin brothers, one of whom develops paranoid schizophrenia.Both novels became number one bestsellers after Oprah Winfrey selected them for her popular Book Club. Lamb’s third novel, The Hour I First Believed, published in 2008, interfaces fiction with such non-fictional events as the Columbine High School shooting, the Iraq War, and, in a story within the story, events of nineteenth-century America. Published the following year, Wishin’ and Hopin’ was a departure for Lamb: a short, comically nostalgic novel about a parochial school fifth grader, set in 1964. In We Are Water, Lamb returns to his familiar setting of Three Rivers. The novel focuses on art, 1950s-era racial strife, and the impact of a devastating flood on a Connecticut family. (Wikipedia).
