After reading Paula Fox's novel, "The God of Nightmares, I was drawn to her protagonist and read with fast turns of the page to see how Fox created dire jeopardy and propelled her protagonist to go on a jolting ride. I went on that ride and rode the waves and jumped to shore with wanting more. So it goes when I read a compassionate writer.
"The God of Nightmares," takes you to New Orleans in 1941. You smell and taste the steamy streets of the French Quarter. The book caught my interest when I read about the author--Paula Fox. She addresses the issues: "How do we go armed into the world? And what does the world do to us if we are not sufficiently prepared to understand it?"
Bought "The God of Nightmares," from Amazon. On the very last page I felt a beat for more; I pressed the last page between my fingers. Fox left me imagining more... that's the way to write a novel.
