Howe, who was raised in Houston, Texas and is a graduate of the Kinkaid School and Columbia University, began writing fiction while working on her doctoral dissertation in American and New England Studies at Boston University. Howe and her husband, the economic historian Louis Hyman (currently a fellow at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences), are core members of a group informally known as the "Springfield Street Table," a small club of Cambridge-area writers and scholars who gather to play poker while trading barbs and debating culture and ideas.
The bestselling novelist Matthew Pearl is also a core member of this group, and is sometimes credited with helping to launch Howe's literary career.
Howe, whose family settled in Essex County, Massachusetts in the 1620s, is related to accused Salem witches Elizabeth Proctor and Elizabeth Howe.
