about this item
In the third title in the Bookmarked series, Paula Bomer discusses the effect on her life and work of The Man Who Loved Children, a 1940 novel by Australian writer Christina Stead. Time included the novel in its "100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005," and the novel has been championed as a classic by novelists Robert Stone, Angela Carter, and Jonathan Franzen, who called it "lyrical in the true sense, every observation and description bursting with feeling, meaning, subjectivity."
Paula Bomer is the author of the collection Inside Madeleine (Soho Press, 2014), the novel Nine Months (Soho Press, 2012), and the collection Baby and Other Stories (Word Riot Press, 2010.) Her books have been reviewed in the New York Times, the Atlantic, O Magazine, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Kirkus Reviews, and elsewhere. She also is the publisher of Sententia Books and edits Sententia: The Literary Journal.
