Erica Wagner lives in London but grew up in New York, where her parents’ job was answering all the fan mail sent to Jim Henson's Muppets. She moved to England in 1986 to take her undergraduate degree at Cambridge. Her books include: Gravity: Stories (Granta, 1997); Ariel’s Gift: Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath and the Story of Birthday Letters (Faber & Faber, 2000; W. W. Norton, 2000); Seizure: A Novel (Faber & Faber, 2007; W. W. Norton, 2007); and Chief Engineer: Washington Roebling, The Man Who Built the Brooklyn Bridge (Bloomsbury, 2017), which was an Economist Book of the Year and a New Statesman Book of the Year. She is now nearing completion of Mary and Mr Eliot, a non-fiction account of the twenty-year friendship between the poet T. S. Eliot and Mary Trevelyan, which will be published by Faber & Faber in the UK and by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in the US in 2021.
