Short biography
Anne Tolstoi Wallach was born Anne Tolstoi in Manhattan, New York on February 19, 1929. She received a bachelor's degree in English at Radcliffe College. After graduating, she took a job at the New York advertising agency J. Walter Thompson. She became a copy writer, working in a women's group that the company had created in the belief that it took women to sell to women. She eventually became a vice president and creative director. After 14 years there, she went to work for another New York agency, Grey Advertising, where she also became a vice president and creative supervisor. Her debut novel, Women's Work, was published in 1981. After the book was published, she left advertising to pursue writing. Her other novels included Private Scores and Trials. She also wrote a nonfiction book entitled Paper Dolls: How to Find, Recognize, Buy, Collect and Sell the Cutouts of Two Centuries. She died from complications of Parkinson's disease on June 27, 2018 at the age of 89.
