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.
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 “danjur” 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.” Download and start listening now!
