My Father’s Story


Introduction

Hugh Bernard Fox Jr. (February 12, 1932 – September 4, 2011) was a writer, novelist, poet and anthropologist and one of the founders of the Pushcart Prize for literature. He has been published in numerous literary magazines and was the first writer to publish a critical study of Charles Bukowski.  He converted to Judaism later in life despite having been a Catholic.  He had six children, Hugh B. Fox, III, Cecilia Fox, Marcella (Kevin Brown) Fox, Margaret Sadock, Alexandra E. (Ray Barker) Fox, and Christopher Fox; four grandchildren, Gabrielle Brown, Rebecca Sadock, Alexander Sadock, and Beatrice Barker;

Personal

Hugh Fox junior was born into an Irish-Catholic family in Chicago in 1932. His father was Hugh Fox Senior.  Hugh Fox senior (April 7, 1985 – December 8, 1970), my grandfather, attended the Stritch School of Medicine of Loyola University, Chicago.  Hugh Fox senior was a staff physician for 15 years at Oak Forest Hospital.  He served in WW I.  My father has portrayed Hugh Fox senior, his father as being an abusive tyrant in his novels.  There is absolutely no evidence to back up this claim and everyone who knew my grandfather agreed that he was a gentle soul.  My grandfather died in Sun City,  California.

    Beautiful

    Would you be able suggest any good links relating to your father’s works on history, prehistory, archeology, and cultural diffusion?

  3. Hello, Mr. Fox. Would you be able to suggest any links relating to your father’s works on cultural diffusion, history, pre-history, or archaeology?

  4. I interviewed your father a couple of years before he died. The interview was published in part, but I plan to publish other conversations we had and found this background very useful in its clarity – there isn’t very much out there as clear and concise as this relating to Hugh Fox. I remember he had planned a plane journey to South America and was so fearful that he wouldn’t make it in his state of health. I guess that was the basis for Never Again.

  5. Hugh was one our first novelists at Skylight Press. We were completely taken by his wonderful personality and miss him greatly. It was our great privilege to correspond with him regularly for just few short months – an experience that we continue to treasure. We remain committed to his literary legacy.

  6. Reblogged this on Through the Skylight and commented:
    Wonderful tribute to Hugh Fox, including the most accurate listing of his literary corpus. Hugh was one of the first novelists to come to us at Skylight. We only had a few short months of correspondence with him but we were completely taken with him and miss him greatly. For those of you that don’t know his work he is a one-of-a-kind writer, fluent in so many genres and styles. His work will endure…

  7. Fantastic, the work you’ve done to uphold your father’s writing after death. My online magazine Wood Coin has, in addition to the novella “Coils of Eternity,” a short story titled “How?” posted in the 11th issue. FYI: the manuscript that he mailed to me in 2010 (a novel he wanted made into a film, featuring a woman with a garish birthmark) was lost by the USPS. (Sadly, the box that “fell apart” contained a handful of material from deceased writers.) Thus far, that’s the only material the postal service has lost… Normally they are excellent. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for your service. Know that Hugh’s books remain in libraries here and there – I came across a nonfiction title of his, put out by Harvard press, about B.C. sexual fetishes and other wonders of those times, in a Santa Fe library.
