Fox 8 [9781526606488]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

An enchanting and darkly comic fable of human greed and nature, from the Man Booker Prize-winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo, exquisitely illustrated by Chelsea Cardinal.

Fox 8 has always been curious, and a bit of a daydreamer. And, by hiding outside houses at dusk and listening to children's bedtime stories, he has learned to speak `Yuman'.

The power of words and the stories built from them is intoxicating for a fox with a poetic soul, but there is `danjur' on the horizon: a new shopping mall is being built, cutting off his pack's food supply.

To save himself and his fellow foxes, Fox 8 will have to set out on a harrowing quest from the wilds of nature deep into the dark heart of suburbia.
AUTHOR: George Saunders is the author of nine books, including Lincoln in the Bardo, which won the 2017 Man Booker Prize, was shortlisted for the Golden Man Booker Prize, and won the Premio Gregor von Rezzori Prize 2018. Tenth of December was a finalist for the National Book Award and won the inaugural Folio Prize. He has received MacArthur and Guggenheim fellowships and the PEN/Malamud Prize for excellence in the short story, and was recently elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2013, he was named one of the world's 100 most influential people by Time magazine. He teaches in the creative writing program at Syracuse University.

Chelsea Cardinal is a graphic designer, illustrator and fashion designer. She grew up on the Canadian prairies, attended the Alberta College of Art + Design, moved to New York in 2005, worked at GQ Magazine for many years and is now freelancing.

    Fox8

    Posted by Pat Olner on 8th Feb 2021

    This is just a delicious little book !
    My son bought me a signed copy , and when I saw this at such a good price I had to buy another one as a gift .
    It's relevant for all ages , unlike some other books of George Saunders ( though I love him as an author , he can be quite surreal ).
    I would thoroughly recommend it .

    Fox 8

    A deeply pertinent story of a very smart fox who leans to speak yuman. We are shown from Fox 8’s viewpoint, just how devastating our human influence is on the natural world of our fellow creatures.
    Darkly comical, Fox 8 feels to me like one of those books that one not only must read, but also give pride of place on our bookshelves.
