Author Bio
Paula Fox
A few days after her birth, Paula Fox's parents left her at a Manhattan foundling home where she remained until her maternal grandmother inquired about her new granddaughter's whereabouts. Reunited with her family, Fox was eventually sent away again, this time to live with a Congregational minster (a former journalist) who first sparked her love for reading and writing. Throughout her childhood, Fox was reunited with and abandoned by her birth parents on several occasions--one time after her mother reportedly told her father, "Either she goes or I go." During this time, Fox lived with several families but most consistently with her maternal grandmother. Before becoming a full-time author for both adults and children, Fox worked at numerous jobs, including as a sales person, a model, an elementary school teacher, and a lathe operator at Bethlehem Steel. In 1972 she won a Guggenheim Fellowship and a National Institute of Arts and Letters Award. She won the Newbery Medal in 1974 for her young adult novel THE SLAVE DANCER. In 1978 she was honored with the Hans Christian Anderson Medal for her body of work--an award many consider the most prestigious in the field of children's literature.

Praise

"What makes NEWS FROM THE WORLD more than the sum of its parts is Fox's voice: astringent (but never cold), unsentimental (but never pitiless), exasperated (but never angry)." - David Leavitt 04/24/2011
