About the Author

Writer and poet Barbara Quick is the author of the novels Vivaldi's Virgins and Northern Edge, winner of the Discover Prize. A Golden Web is her first book for teen readers. An avid traveler and student of other languages, she has run an international boardinghouse; written everything from self-help books to humor columns to grant requests for disadvantaged children; and done whatever jobs she needed to do -- from landscape gardening to catering to editing -- to allow her to continue writing. She lives with her teenage son, Julian, in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she takes frequent classes and occasionally performs with a Brazilian dance troupe.

Reviews

"Quick has chosen a fascinating backdrop. Her novel shimmers....This is a good read."--Booklist
"A genuine successor to [Tracy Chevalier's Girl with a Pearl Earring]."--Houston Chronicle
"Quick's descriptions of Anna Maria's violin playing soar off the page, evoking Vivaldi's own compositions."--San Francisco Chronicle
