NOTES

"When I began writing all that I had going for me was that I could type 80 words per minute, I could spell and I liked words. But in doing it, I found that the real reward was the writing itself, working at it day by day and finally accomplishing something--that was it. To have a book published is one of the most exciting things that can happen to you. Infinitely more rewarding than acting." --Thomas Tryon, quoted in his obituary in The New York Times, September 5, 1991.

Among his ancestors was William Tryon, a Tory who was Governor of New York before and during the American Revolution.

Awarded the Prix Femina de Belgique (1964)
