Born in 1926 and a University of South Carolina graduate, William Price Fox studied under Caroline Gordon, taught writing at the famed Iowa Writer’s Workshop, and was the Writer-In-Residence at USC until 2007. As a novelist, he tries to make every book different from the one before and dislikes being compared to anyone else or being pigeon-holed. His works include Southern Fried and Doctor Golf, as well as contributions to many publications. Musician Bruce Springsteen wrote his famous song “Darlington County” based on Fox’s book, Dixiana Moon.
William Price Fox died on April 19, 2015.
