    Shirley Ann Grau is the author of five other novels–Roadwalkers, The House on Coliseum Street, The Hard Blue Sky, The Condor Passes, and Evidence of Love–and three story collections. She lives in New Orleans and on Martha’s Vineyard.
    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1965, The Keepers of the House is Shirley Ann Grau’s masterwork, a many-layered indictment of racism and rage that is as terrifying as it is wise.

    Entrenched on the same land since the early 1800s, the Howlands have, for seven generations, been pillars of their Southern community. Extraordinary family lore has been passed down to Abigail Howland, but not all of it. When shocking facts come to light about her late grandfather William’s relationship with Margaret Carmichael, a black housekeeper, the community is outraged, and quickly gathers to vent its fury on Abigail. Alone in the house the Howlands built, she is at once shaken by those who have betrayed her, and determined to punish the town that has persecuted her and her kin.

    Morally intricate, graceful and suspenseful, The Keepers of the House has become a modern classic.
