An enchanting and darkly comic fable of human greed and nature, from George Saunders, the Man Booker Prize-winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo, exquisitely illustrated by Chelsea Cardinal.

Fox 8 has always been curious, and a bit of a daydreamer. And, by hiding outside houses at dusk and listening to children's bedtime stories, he has learned to speak `Yuman'.

The power of words and the stories built from them is intoxicating for a fox with a poetic soul, but there is `danjur' on the horizon: a new shopping mall is being built, cutting off his pack's food supply. To save himself and his fellow foxes, Fox 8 will have to set out on a harrowing quest from the wilds of nature deep into the dark heart of suburbia.

Waterstones Says
The Man Booker Prize-winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo re-emerges with a lavishly illustrated vulpine fable that is sharp, uncanny and intoxicatingly macabre.

'There is no one better, no one more essential' - Dave Eggers

'Few people cut as hard or deep as Saunders does' - Junot Diaz

'There is really no one like him. He is an original - but everyone knows that' - Lorrie Moore
