Abstract

Profile of author Anita Shreve, who fell in love with a house in Biddeford Pool that has appeared in three of her novels, "The Pilot's Wife," "Fortune's Rocks," and "Sea Glass," and which is the setting for her new novel, "Body Surfing," due out in April. The house was merged with the nearby Marie-Joseph Spiritual Center and moved to New Hampshire in her fiction. Shreve, who lives in Western Mass., has a home in Biddeford Pool called Fortune's Rocks. She was a journalist and editor and wrote two non-fiction books, but turned to fiction full-time in 1989. She has won several literature awards and "The Pilot's Wife" was an Oprah pick that became a movie of the same name.
