In 1944, Ms. Harriette Simps Arnow moved to Detroit, a setting that would act as the inspiration for her best known work The Dollmaker. In 1950 the family made Ann Arbor, Michigan home and Ms. Arnow’s career soared to new levels. Among her many honors as a writer, Ms. Arnow won the Saturday Review “Best Novel” award for Hunter’s Horn in 1949, beating out George Orwell’s classic 1984. The Dollmaker was runner up for the 1955 National Book Award, second to William Faulkner’s A Fable.
