About the Author

Mandy-Suzanne Wong is a Bermudian writer of fiction and essays. Her works include the novel Drafts of a Suicide Note, the essay collection Listen, we all bleed, and the chapbooks Awabi and Artificial Wilderness.


"If one of César Aira's sly, sophisticated fictions took a detour through Jane Bennett's theory of vibrant matter, the result might look something like The Box. At once a detective story, a meditation on art in the Anthropocene, and a speculative encounter with the liveliness of things, Mandy-Suzanne Wong's startling novel is literature for our times."--Sofia Samatar, author of The White Mosque

"Mandy-Suzanne Wong's bold, singular, and brilliant novel is so strange, so enigmatic, it's nearly impossible to describe. By turns funny and profound, The Box is a feat of language and storytelling and, in the end, a revelation."--Mark Haber

"The Box is an extraordinary novel, gamesome and philosophical. Not since Borges have I experienced fiction as a perfect maze or puzzle, endlessly pleasing. The reader enters it, fascinated, just as s/he goes out into the snow, which is always falling. Mandy-Suzanne Wong is a writer to watch."--Amina Cain, author of A Horse at Night and Indelicacy

"Riveting and elegant, The Box brings to mind Kazuo Ishiguro at his most enigmatic."--Daisy Rockwell, translator of Tomb of Sand by Geetanjali Shree and author of Taste
