Still Time, by Jean Hegland

“A moving, beautiful story about what persists and what doesn’t, about what can be repaired and what can’t. This is a tale focused and personal, but also large and philosophical.”

—Karen Joy Fowler, author of
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

Into the Forest, by Jean Hegland

“By rights this tale of the complete collapse of society and technology should be a depressing story, but the author has turned it onto a triumph.”

STILL TIME

From the author of Into the Forest, a moving novel about memory, Shakespeare's green worlds, and the power of reconciliation.

ISBN: 9781628728217

Welcome

Jean Hegland

Welcome to the official website for Jean Hegland, author of Into the Forest, WindfallsThe Life Within, and Still Time.

Jean’s latest novel, Still Time, is about a Shakespeare scholar’s attempts to come to terms with his life and reconcile with his estranged daughter as he struggles with Alzheimer’s disease. An intellectual and emotional tour de force that confronts—and transcends—our fears of aging and memory loss, Still Time has received enthusiastic acclaim from Shakespeare scholars as well as from readers who are indifferent (or even allergic) to Shakespeare.

Into the Forest, the story of two sisters struggling to survive after the collapse of technological society, has been translated into over a dozen languages since it was first published in 1997. The French translation, which was released in January, 2017, has become a French best-seller.

Into the Forest has also been adapted to the big screen. Directed by Patricia Rozema, the film stars Ellen Page (who also serves as co-producer) and Evan Rachel Wood. It premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September, 2015, and is now available on a number of online and on-demand video services.

Jean enjoys presenting at writers conferences and workshops; check the events page or look below for information on upcoming events.

A native of Washington state, Jean lives in northern California on 55 acres of second-growth forest.  She has taught creative and literature for many years, both in California and abroad. She is always at work on another book.
