Biographical Sketch

Paula Fox was born April 22, 1923, in New York, NY. She has written award-winning picture books, chapter books, novels for intermediate readers, and realistic fiction for young adults. Though she has won less notoriety for her adult fiction, she has contributed to that field, as well. In her juvenile and young adult novels she has dealt with a wide range of subjects, including parental conflict, alcoholism, abandonment, the misery of AIDS, and death. Her youthful protagonists are often placed in difficult situations and exotic locales. Of all her books, the controversial yet highly acclaimed The Slave Dancer , winner of the 1974 Newbery Medal, is the work for which Fox is best known.
