A New Yorker by birth and spirit, “Helen Hudson” is the pen name of Helen Lane, recipient of a bachelors’ degree from Bryn Mawr College and a doctorate in American History from Columbia University. In addition to her eight previous books, she has brought into the world two writer sons, R. Lawrence Lane (founder of the “New Rep” theater, Newton and Watertown, MA), and Thomas E. Lane (Artist’s Manifesto, and the forthcoming Karma). Her brother, Donald Sobol, created the Encyclopedia Brown series; her husband, Robert E. Lane, is a Professor Emeritus of political science at Yale University. Up through yesterday, in her retirement community in Hamden, Connecticut, she has continued to write and edit stories.
Reviewed as a “superior writer” by The New Yorker magazine, Helen Hudson is the critically acclaimed author of Tell the Time to None, Meyer Meyer, The Listener, Farnsbee South, Temporary Residence and Criminal Trespass. All these works of fiction reflect her lifelong concern with social justice and responsibility. She also edited Dinner at Six: Voices from the Soup Kitchen, a collection of interviews with people she met while volunteering at a soup kitchen in her home town.
