Description
Winner of the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for Fiction
One of"Granta"'s Best Young British Novelists
From the acclaimed author of "Boy, Snow, Bird"
Fairytale romances end with a wedding. The fairytales that don t get more complicated. 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's not until Mary, his muse, comes to life and transforms him from author into subject that his story begins to unfold differently. Meanwhile, Daphne becomes convinced that her husband is havingan 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?
