Lady Into Fox | David Garnett

So glad I got this on a whim last weekend (blurbed by Virginia Woolf!). A reverse Beauty and the Beast fable, where a respectable woman is inexplicably transformed into a fox. Her devoted husband‘s love is challenged as the transformation becomes more than surface level. It‘s a moving allegory for all the changes we see in people we love, and abt loving someone for who they are, not who they used to be or who you want them to be.

Michael_Gee Love the woodcuts by his then-wife Ray Garnett, and the naming of the husband‘s favorite little fox being Angelica (then a toddler, who Garnett would later marry. The sexy top right image is a portrait of Garnett done by his lover Duncan Grant, who was the father of Angelica). (edited) 1y

I seem to have developed a taste for this author. This was silly, light hearted and fun. For something 90 years old it's not as problematic as you might expect though it has a couple of well worn tropes, they're not ones that are exclusive to old books.

The story concerns a man who starts to randomly turn into different animals. So that probably tells you what you need to know about how serious it is.

Children were quite disturbing really. It was difficult to think about children for long. They were all fickle little nihilists and one was forever being forced to protect oneself from their murderousness.

"Philosophical initiation has occurred when one's desires and efforts are not simply for the pleasure of gaining more information. [...] A philosophical initiate therefore aims at a deeper understanding of self and our fellow human beings, and seeks to transform that understanding into wisdom." Pg. 53 - Four Categories of Masonry

I can‘t say I enjoyed this book, but I appreciated it. A deeply unsettling story of time, aging, childhood and motherhood. And the intro from Karen Russell is really good. The book was originally published in 1978 and I imagine it would‘ve been viewed as controversial or fringe-y then.

vivastory That cover! 2y
Liz_M I agree, beautiful cover! 2y

sarahbarnes @vivastory @Liz_M @readordierachel @Cathythoughts I know! 😍 The cover was definitely one of the main reasons it caught my eye, knowing nothing about the book when I bought it. 2y
