Author Hannah Green (1927–1996) was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and lived in Greenwich Village, New York. As an undergraduate
at Wellesley, she enrolled in Vladimir Nabokov's survey of Russian literature in translation, which she later wrote about
in The New Yorker. Green received her Master of Fine Arts degree at Stanford University with Wallace Stegner. There she met Tillie Olsen, and
the two began a lifelong friendship. In 1960, she was a recipient of the first of many MacDowell Colony residencies. Among
her published work are the books The Dead of the House (first published by Doubleday in 1972) and Golden Spark, Little Saint: My Book of the Hours of Saint Foy (2000), and the children's book In the City of Paris, as well as articles in The New Yorker. Green taught in the writing programs of Stanford, Columbia and New York University. Until her death from lung cancer in
1996, she was married to the American artist John Wesley.
