Product Details


“Shelia Kohler’s The Bay Of Foxes is a sexy subtle psychological thriller. With delicate and terrifying grace Kohler illuminates the complex hidden lives of her characters, whose needs and desires transgress the bounds of the familiar and comfortable. This seductive and wonderfully unexpected tale confirms Sheila Kohler’s place as a master of the novel.”—A. M. Homes, author of May We Be Forgiven

“Her work is both spare and sensuous – understated and fraught with tension…involving the reader intensely in the narrative.”—Joyce Carol Oates, author of Them

“Patricia Highsmith meets Nadine Gordimer in this mesmerizing tale of sex, longing and murder.”—Jonathan Santlofer, author of The Death Artist

“There is a territory—fictional and psychological—that Sheila Kohler has now marked as her own. . . . I am full of admiration.”—J. M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize winning author of Disgrace

“Her stories are elegant, smooth, and gorgeously sensual, belying the tension that crackles beneath. Long after I’ve finished reading one of her stories, the image continues to pulse.”—Amy Tan, New York Times bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club

“Kohler, a master of psychological intrigue, begins with an encounter in a Parisian café between the famous, sixtyish M. and a young, impoverished refugee named Dawit. The pair decamps to Sardinia’s Bay of Foxes and into a sinister affair.”Reader’s Digest

“In this elegant, sensuous, literary thriller, set in the poshest enclaves of Paris, Sardinia, and Rome… an indelibly written hommage to the art of Miss Highsmith and the talents of Mr. Ripley. This is a book to savor on every level.”—Joan Schenkar, author of The Talented Miss Highsmith
