Natalie Babbitt – Tuck Everlasting

Natalie Babbitt, the author of Tuck Everlasting and many other books, died on Monday at 84. The New Your Times outlines her life and her writing.

Babbitt says about her book-

“Actually, I don’t think of ‘Tuck’ as being about death,” Ms. Babbitt said in 1982. “The tale is concerned with life — its finiteness, what this means and whether or not, ultimately, it is preferable to immortality.”

Anne Tyler, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, described “Tuck Everlasting” as “one of the best books ever written — for any age.”
