Mrs Fox: Faber Stories

Sarah Hall

£3.50

She turns her head and smiles. Something is wrong with her face. The bones have been recarved. Her lips are thin and her nose is a dark blade. Teeth small and yellow. The lashes of her hazel eyes have thickened and her brows are drawn together, an expression he has never seen, a look that is almost craven. ‘Mrs Fox’ is the story of a husband who is shocked out of his complacency when his wife undergoes a remarkable transformation.

Description

Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles.

Walking ahead of him on the heath, his wife turns to look at him over her shoulder, ‘Topaz eyes glinting. Scorched face. Vixen.’

In language harvested from nature, Sarah Hall tells a story of metamorphosis, of wildness and fecundity, and of a man reaching for reason, who cannot let go of the creature he loves.

Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
