Paula Fox

What a life and the books, oh the books! I just learned about her passing by happenstance this morning. (I went through a period of not reading/watching the news and missed the announcement.) I would have missed her entirely if Jonathan Franzen and Tom Bissell hadn’t unearthed her treasures a few years ago, and I started reading her  – I was so happy to have found her.

I have a page dedicated to Paula Fox’s books under my Thoughts about books I’ve read page,-but I thought I should put them here today, like a library of sorts – browse through them, please – I highly recommend each one.
