Dinitia Smith

Dinita Smith is a writer, teacher, and novelist whose work includes The Illusionist, chosen as a New York Times notable book of the year. Recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Ingram Merrill Foundation, she has also taught writing at Columbia University and the Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference and served as a cultural correspondent for the New York Times. Her most recent novel, The Honeymoon, is a fictionalized imagining of George Eliot’s late-life marriage. In a starred review, Booklist writes that while “Eliot fans will certainly inhale every page,” any reader of historical fiction will “thoroughly relish Smith’s tale of a remarkable woman and an unlikely Victorian love.”
