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., Fantasy fiction., MWT11398967, Made available through hoopla, Marriage, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Mr. Fox /Helen Oyeyemi., Mr. FoxHelen Oyeyemi., New York :Riverhead Books,2011., Novelists, Oyeyemi, Helen., PR6115.Y49M7 2011, Read by Carole Boyd., Unable to stop killing off the heroines of his novels, celebrated writer Mr. Fox is confronted by a living embodiment of his muse, Mary, who challenges him to join her in fairy-tale stories where they must stay together in spite of disparate character traits., Unabridged., [United States]:Blackstone Audio, Inc. ,2011., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/bsa_9780792780601_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw|
