Sinopsis completa FOX 8 y descripción
From New York Times author #1 of Lincoln in the Bardo, a darkly comic short story about the unintended consequences unleashed by our quest to tame the natural world, with beautiful black and white illustrations of Chelsea Cardinal.
Fox 8 has always been known as the dreamer in his backpack, the one his fellow foxes look at with a snort of knowledge and a twist of eyes.
That is, until he develops a unique skill: he teaches himself to speak "Yuman" by hiding in the bushes outside a house and listening to children's bedtime stories.
The power of language fuels his abundant curiosity for people, even after "danjer" arrives in the form of a new mall that cuts off his food supply, sending Fox 8 on an anguished quest to help save his herd.
Narrated with its distinctive blend of humor and pathos, Fox 8 shows the extraordinary imaginative talents of George Saunders, whom The New York Times called "the writer of our time.
