Mr Fox

by Helen Oyeyemi
£7.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2012)

Mr Fox by Helen Oyeyemi An exhilarating new direction for Helen Oyeyemi with a mischievous story of love, lies and inspiration.
 
It’s an ordinary afternoon in 1938 for the celebrated American novelist St John Fox, hard at work in the study of his suburban home – until his long-absent muse wanders in. Mary Foxe (beautiful, British and 100% imaginary) is in a playfully combative mood. “You’re a villain,” she tells him. ‘A serial killer....can you grasp that?"
 
Will Mr Fox meet his muse’s challenge, to stop murdering his heroines and explore something of love? What will his wife Daphne think of this sudden change in her husband? Can there be a happy ending – this time?

"Funny, deep, shocking, wry, heart-warming and spine-chilling"
(Guardian)
"Oyeyemi’s characters almost dance on their pages. This is her best, most beautiful novel yet"
(Independent on Sunday)
