Description

Fairy-tale romances end with a
wedding, and the fairy tales don't get complicated. In this book, celebrated
writer Mr. Fox can't stop himself from killing off the heroines of his novels,
and neither can his wife, Daphne. It is not until Mary, his muse, comes to life
and transforms him from author into subject that his story begins to unfold
differently. Mary challenges Mr. Fox to join her in stories of their own
devising; and so, through different times and places, the two of them seek each
other, find each other, thwart each other, and try to stay together, even when
the roles they inhabit seem to forbid it. Their adventures twist the fairy tale
into nine variations, exploding and teasing conventions of genre and romance,
and each iteration explores the fears that come with accepting a lifelong bond.


Meanwhile, Daphne becomes convinced
that her husband is having an affair and finds her way into Mary and Mr. Fox's
game. And so Mr. Fox is offered a choice: Will it be a life with the girl of
his dreams or a life with an all-too-real woman who delights him more than he
cares to admit?


The extraordinarily gifted Helen
Oyeyemi has written a love story like no other. Mr. Fox is a magical book, endlessly inventive, as witty and
charming as it is profound in its truths about how we learn to be with one
another.
