Borrowed Findery

Paula Fox

2001

When Paula Fox was born to 19 year old Elsie and her partner, Paul - both screenwriters - she was immediately put into a foundling hospital. Paula's maternal grandmother, however, retrieved the baby and so began a nomadic childhood for Paula as she was moved around from foster care to kinship care and back again. Paula Fox reflects on this unusual childhood from the perspective of being in her 70s and after a late starting but long career as a successful writer.
