HOW MANY MILES TO BABYLON?
Cuban-American author Paula Fox's writing career began only in her 40s, after an already eventful life. She would go on to receive the Newbery Medal and the Hans Christian Andersen Award; later in life, she found an unexpected champion in Jonathan Franzen. In this book little James runs into trouble after skipping out of school, and ends up traveling across Brooklyn.
