It hasn’t even hit bookstore shelves yet, and Therese Anne Fowler’s forthcoming novel, A Well Behaved Woman is already slated for Sony Pictures Television for an upcoming series! The novel, which follows iron-willed Alva Vanderbilt and her illustrious family as they rule Gilded-Age New York, will be published in October by St. Martin’s Press.
With a nod to Jane Austen and Edith Wharton, A Well-Behaved Woman paints a glittering world of enormous wealth contrasted against desperate poverty, of social ambition and social scorn, of friendship and betrayal, and an unforgettable story of a remarkable woman. Meet Alva Smith Vanderbilt Belmont, living proof that history is made by those who know the rules—and how to break them.
Fowler’s first novel, Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, was also adapted for television. Amazon Prime launched the series, which starred Christina Ricci.
Congrats, Therese! We can’t wait to see Alva come to life on screen!
