Fox

By Dubravka Ugresic
Fox is the story of literary footnotes and "minor" characters--unnoticed people propelled into timelessness through the biographies and novels of others. With Ugresic's characteristic wit, Fox takes us from Russia to Japan, through Balkan minefields and American road trips, and from the 1920s to the present, as it explores the power of storytelling and literary invention, betrayal, and the randomness of human lives.


    REVIEW QUOTES
Winner of the 2016 Neustadt International Prize for Literature.

"Ugresic is also affecting and eloquent, in part because within her quirky, aggressively sweet plot she achieves moments of profundity and evokes the stoicism innate in such moments."--Mary Gaitskill

"Never has a writer been more aware of how one narrative depends on another."--Joanna Walsh

"Like Nabokov, Ugresic affirms our ability to remember as a source for saving our moral and compassionate identity."--John Balaban, Washington Post

"A genuinely free-thinker, Ugresic's attachment to absurdity leads her down paths where other writers fear to tread."--The Independent

"As long as some, like Ugresic, who can write well, do, there will be hope for the future."--New Criterion

"Ugresic's wit is bound by no preconceived purposes, and once the story takes off, a wild freedom of association and adventurous discernment is set in motion. . . . Ugresic dissects the social world."--World Literature Today

"Ugresic is unbeatable at explaining the inexplicable entanglements of Balkan cultural traditions, particularly as they relate to the hellish position of women."--Clive James

"Ugresic must be numbered among what Jacques Maritain called the dreamers of the true; she draws us into the dream."--New York Times

"Dubravka Ugresic is the philosopher of evil and exile, and the storyteller of many shattered lives."--Charles Simic
