The Coldest Winter: A Stringer in Liberated Europe
by Paula Fox, a review from Esquire by Anna Godbersen.
"It would be difficult for a young American traveling abroad now to experience a Europe untouched by tourists, but everything was very different in 1946, of course, when Paula Fox first went to the Louvre and found herself 'nearly alone in the museum except for a drunken elderly custodian.' Fox's was not your average post-college sojourn, to say the least; as she recalls in her memoir The Coldest Winter, she sailed from New York to London at twenty-two, just after World War II, to take a job as a stringer for a small British news service."
