One on One with Fiona Davis

    In Fiona Davis’ new novel, The Masterpiece, the art world of 1920’s New York shimmers with promise for an ambitious young illustrator (inspired by real life artist Helen Dryden) and the fallen socialite who discovers her work 50 years later. As she did in her first two novels – The Dollhouse and The Address – Davis sets the scene in a storied New York City landmark, Grand Central Terminal. “I was so interested in tracking how women’s voices change over time … or how they haven’t,” said Davis, a former actress who moved to New York after college. In this 30 minute interview, she talks about leaving the stage, bringing characters to life and the unique benefits of success after 40.
