Reviews

"Oyeyemi's writing is gorgeous and resonant and fresh . . . a shimmering landscape pulsating with life."--Aimee Bender, The New York Times Book Review

"Oyeyemi has an eye for the gently perverse, the odd detail that turns the ordinary marvelously, frighteningly strange."--The Boston Globe

"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

"A sly, tender, and elegant novel, graced with a magical charm that makes this novel's wisdom about love and loss all the more captivating to read. Mr. Fox is a novel for those who love stories and who believe in their singular power to alter and heal our fragile souls."--Dinaw Mengestu, author of The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears and How to Read the Air
