Maritta Wolff Book and Novel

Maritta Wolff - Author


Maritta Wolff was born in 1918. Whistle Stop, her first novel, won the Avery Hopwood Award in 1940. A runaway bestseller, the book was also printed as a special Armed Forces edition for American troops during World War II. Whistle Stop was made into a movie (starring Ava Gardner) in 1946. In the next two decades, Ms. Wolff authored more than five novels, but she hid her final, unpublished manuscript in her refrigerator until her death in 2002. Recently rediscovered, that novel, Sudden Rain, is now available from Simon & Schuster.
