The author has enjoyed long success in the genre of Young Adult fiction, but has been most acclaimed for her powerful memoir Borrowed Finery. This is a nice presentation copy, inscribed on the title page: "October, 1984, For my dearest and favorite YA reader with all love from your old YA writer, XXX Paula." The recipient was the writer and translator William Weaver, an old friend of Fox's and her frequent host at his house in Italy. Laid in are six original letters from Fox to Weaver (1984-85), full of chat and gossip, as well as with literary content.
