Abigail De Witt

Abigail DeWitt was born in Chapel Hill, NC in 1959. The youngest daughter of two theoretical physicists, she spent her childhood summers in the Alps, where her mother, a Frenchwoman who had come to the US at Robert Oppenheimer’s invitation, ran a summer institute for physicists. DeWitt’s fiction, like her childhood, is set partly in a France still impoverished and reeling from WW2, partly in an America enjoying its peak of prosperity.
