Best Return of a Literary Icon: Pat Littledog

Pat Littledog and now ex-husband Chuck Taylor grew Paperbacks Plus into literary central for Eighties Austin. Then known as Pat Ellis Taylor, Littledog made waves when Atlantic Monthly Press published her semi-autobiographical and slyly feminist novel-in-stories Afoot in a Field of Men. It follows a thirtysomething hippie named Pat in an era when hippies were feeling the sting of time and responsibility. Taylor's Slough Press just re-released the book and revealed again what a wise, funny, and refreshing writer Littledog is.
