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." Praise for George Saunders and Tenth of December "The best book you'll read this year . . . more moving and emotionally accessible than anything that has come before."—The New York Times Magazine "Saunders is a complete original, unlike anyone else."—Dave Eggers "Affecting [and] wincingly funny . . . It's no exaggeration to say that the short story master George Saunders helped change the trajectory of American fiction."—The Wall Street Journal "Subversive, hilarious, and emotionally piercing."—Jennifer Egan "Not since Twain has America produced a satirist this funny."—Zadie Smith "George Saunders makes the all-but-impossible look effortless. We're lucky to have him."—Jonathan Franzen "Tenth of December isn't just [Saunders's] most unexpected work yet; it's also his best . . . as weird, scary, and devastating as America itself."—NPR "An astoundingly tuned voice—graceful, dark, authentic, and funny—telling just the kinds of stories we need to get us through these times."—Thomas Pynchon "The best short-story writer in English alive." —Mary Karr
