Book of the Day September 20

Camel-Lion by Hugh Fox (Deceased)

Hugh Fox (February 12, 1932 – September 4, 2011) was born into an Irish-Catholic family in Chicago. He was a writer and one of the founders of the Pushcart Prize for Literature. He was published in numerous literary magazines and was the first writer to publish a critical study of Charles Bukowski. He became interested in literature and the arts at a young age, and attended Chicago's Jesuit college, Loyola University. After receiving a master's degree in the humanities, he went on to earn a Ph.D. in American Literature from the University of Illinois.

In 1958, he began teaching at Loyola University of Los Angeles. Three years later, he served as Visiting Professor of American Studies at the University of Sonora in Mexico, and during 1964 and 1965 he was a visiting professor at several universities in Caracas, Venezuela, including Universidad Católica Andrés Bello and the Instituto Pedagogico. Also a specialist in pre-Columbian Amerindian religion, Fox lectured throughout South America under the sponsorship of the United States Information Service. It was at this time that he worked on the manuscript for his novel The Taffy Hills, which was never published.
