57 Books from the University Book Sale: Book 23

Title: Lady into Fox (& A Man in the Zoo)
Author: David Garnett
Cover artist: "Loew" (see signature under the "Lady" — can't find an artist credit)

Yours for: postage

  • Yes, if my Lady turned into a (literal) Fox, I would look Exactly like that guy.
  • Actually, the fox may be mildly hotter than that lady, whose face and boobs appear to have been oddly pancaked.
  • Her veil / neckpiece is awesomely monstrous, like it's eating her head.
  • She appears to be twirling those flowers between her palms rather than just holding them.
  • The definition of "tore up!" (def. 2)

Way to work the passive voice! Otherwise -- zzzzzzzz...

Tulse said...

Is it one novel? Two? Are related in any other way than the suggestion of animalistic gender transformation?

I'm so confused...

That guy looks so dejected. "I said I wanted her to be foxier, I didn't want her to be an actual fox!"

Frank said...

Hey, the Japanese are all about the sexy fox-ladies! Kitsune!

Marla said...

Mr. Cromartie's imprisonment and unexplained display sound positively cozy.

For what it's worth, both novellas in this book are rather ace. Shame about the cover, though.

My thought when I saw the cover art: Chaucer's _Canterbury Tales_... evocative of wood cuts and deathless story lines! Honest!
