Fox 8: A Story Book Summary

From the author of the instant New York Times bestseller Tenth of December comes a darkly comic short story, a fable about the all too real impact that we humans have on the environment—now available for the first time as an eBook.
Fox 8 has always been known as the daydreamer in his pack, the one his fellow foxes regarded with a knowing snort and a roll of the eyes. That is, until Fox 8 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 about people—even after “danjer” arrives in the form of a new shopping mall that cuts off his food supply, sending Fox 8 on a harrowing quest to help save his pack. Told with his distinctive blend of humor and pathos, Fox 8 showcases the extraordinary imaginative talents of George Saunders, whom the New York Times called “the writer for our time.”

Fox 8: A Story - George Saunders Reviews

  • Different

    By Sam Peee
    It took a while to adjust to this type of wording but once you get going it was pretty easy. Seemed very much like a fable which kind of rambled on at the end. Might read it to my kids if I ever have some....
  • Truly insightful

    By Amazingbob5
    I was looking for a good book about foxes and found this one and it is the best decision I have made in a long time. It shows how people have put mean stereotypes and shows the cruelness of our abuse towards these animals. It is a must-read by everyone, and please take in the meaning of this story to heart, it is truly insightful.
