Would you read a novel by Paula Fox?

October 30, 2014 § 1 Comment

Archie Leach, Frances Ethel Gumm and Norma Jean Baker were known to their public as Cary Grant, Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe.

Good writers can be called names such as Dawn Powell, Paula Fox, and Jan Mark. And I think that’s a pity because their names rather put some of us off. Would the Brontës have appealed as much if they had perpetuated the name Brunty (or Prunty)  from which Brontë is derived?

    I never worry too much about the name. If the picture on the front cover is nice I will buy it. In fact I always judge a book by it’s cover!
