Paula Fox is an excellent writer and her experiences in Europe following the war are fascinating. Interesting because of what she describes and interesting what an intrepid young woman she was.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Filling in the biographical gaps 3 septembre 2008
Par Sheila Michaels - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is cobbled from pieces in a wide variety of magazines, reviews & little journals--with some chapters written for the book--so the point of view does vary.

Fox's story follows her biography _Borrowed Finery_, which was amplified by the novel _The Western Coast_. _The Coldest Winter_ fills out the story of her beginnings as a writer & explores how she gained a foothold in the world. She explores the oppression of both the communist bloc & Franco's Spain, by talking about the people who crossed her wandering path.

There are astonishing vignettes, such as seeing Winston Churchill in the street, drunk, being steered along by a group of men, while he is weeping & mascara runs down his face. (She later found that Churchill's lashes & brows were so pale that he always wore mascara in public.) There are many such stunning moments. It's a fast read, but worthwhile.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Choppy writing and erratic recollections 2 octobre 2015
Par Alex - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book came highly recommended, and since I am very interested in the post-war era, I eagerly picked it up. I have to say, though, that I can not share the reader's opinion who felt so strongly in favor of this book. One of the many things she raved about was the writing; every single sentence was said to be exquisite. It might come down to a matter of taste, but I find Paula Fox's writing choppy and difficult to follow; this is not what I would consider "exquisite." Fox seems to jump from sentence to sentence with no intention of taking her reader by the hand and leading the reader through this period of her life, but she just throws out, sometimes seemingly erratic and completely unrelated memories. It took me about a month to finish this book (which is a considerable amount of time, considering how thin it is), and reading it was a drag, mostly owed to the aforementioned choppy writing and the lack of an actual storyline. I also couldn't help but be a bit appalled by the name-dropping that didn't help the book.

What I *did* like and why I give this book 3 stars instead of 2 or even 1 is the fresh perspective that Paula Fox brings. Most post-war memoirs have been penned by war survivors of sorts who had (or have) a highly emotional recollection of this time. Paula Fox, however, wanders through parts of Europe with the naivite and the innocent view of an unsuspecting child. Though maybe that is exactly the problem here: Maybe the lack of emotional involvement makes the book so erratic and coarse.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 incredibly disappointing 13 octobre 2015
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur

wish I had paid more attention to the reviews before purchasing. I read the whole book hoping to find something of worth, without success. Very disappointing. I don't know why something like this would even be published. A few insights, some sketchs, some recollections - nothing of value.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Cursory Memoir of Europe in 1946 26 avril 2012
Par K Scheffler - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Lucid, interesting, yet somewhat cursory memoir of the author's experiences immediately following the war. She was, of course, young and idealistic, but also well connected; not surprisingly, she eventually professes to have had Communist-leanings (but this--supposedly--came to an end with her experiences in Poland). evidently she didn't think much (at the time, at least) about the widespread campaign of rape against German women by the Russians. Naturally one would expect little sympathy for the Germans so soon after the war--but if she thought that such things were simply a response to Nazi brutality, she was (and probably still is) sorely mistaken.
