About the author
Blue Balliett's first novel, Chasing Vermeer, was a Book Sense Book of the Year and an Edgar Award winner. Kirkus Reviews called The Wright 3 "another tour de force blending art, math, philosophy, history and literature." And when The Calder Game appeared, Publishers Weekly said (in a starred review) that "Balliett outdoes herself with this ambitious novel." Blue writes in the laundry room of her home in Hyde Park, Illinois, although her research takes her to many unexpected places.
