About the Work
"Dorothy Parker once said of Hemingway that he 'avoids New York, for he has the most valuable asset an artist can possess - the fear of what he knows is bad for him'. Throughout her life Paul occupied geographic margins, places the occasion for undistracted work, but places redeemed by inclusion in her work. At a time when proponents of an internationalism scorned any perceived regionalism, Paul simply by-passed the supposed debate by fathoming the barely noticeable local."
