“Dazzling.”—The Washington Post

“Cheeky and imaginative.”—The New Yorker

“Startling, beautiful . . . [Mr. Fox] should not be ignored.”—Chicago Sun Times

Mr. Fox is a wonderfully original novel, full of images and turns of phrase so arresting, so vivid and inventive, its pages almost glow with them. Helen Oyeyemi has given us a work of playful charm and serious narrative pleasure.”—Sarah Waters, author of The Little Stranger
