Book Talk: Yangsze Choo’s The Fox Wife

February 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Yangsze Choo as she discusses her latest novel The Fox Wife.

About the Book
Manchuria, 1908. Masquerading as a simple young woman from the north, Snow sets out to find her daughter’s killer to avenge her wrongful death. Snow isn’t just any bereaved mother, however—she’s also a fox spirit who can switch between forms at will. On her hunt for revenge, sheappears at a cursed family’s doorstep and becomes their servant. With the mysterious servant’s arrival, their luck is seemingly changing; but Snow’s true motives and origins remain unclear to them. As Snow sets out on her emotional journey to catch her prey, there are uncanny happenings in town. A young woman is found dead, and a detective named Bao begins to suspect the work of shapeshifting fox spirits. Bao has felt tied to fox spirits ever since he survived a near-fatal bout of illness as a child—and ever since this brush with death, from which his nanny claims he was delivered by these spirits, he has been able to hear a faint warning sound when someone is lying. Led by this unique gift, his investigation drives him to pursue the dead woman’s identity as he ventures to uncover the truth.

These fantastical storylines converge amid Yangsze Choo’s masterful prose in a way that will leave you breathless. Full of cunning and fox-like cleverness, THE FOX WIFE is a beautifully transfixing novel you won’t want to put down.
