Product description

Review

"The Fox Woman is one of the more notable fantasy novels in recent memory." "[The Fox Woman] captures the atmosphere of Japan's old courts while avoiding ostentation. This is only Johnson's first novel but it establishes her as one of SF's most remarkable stylists." "The Fox Woman is a magnificent book, powerfully and profoundly moving; in its moods and atmosphere, utterly magical, a genuine and unique work of high art. And all of this expressed through language that is elegant, economical, graceful. The Fox Woman immediately sets the author in the front rank of today's novelists."

From the Inside Flap

Praise for Kij Johnson and The Fox Woman

"A magnificent book, powerfully and profoundly moving; in its moods and atmosphere, utterly magical, a genuine and unique work of high art. The Fox Woman immediately sets the author in the front rank of today's novelists."
-Lloyd Alexander

"The Fox Woman is one of the more notable fantasy novels in recent memory."
-Seattle Times

"If you are a smash-and-grab, blood-on-the-sword fantasy reader, this astonishingly lyrical first novel about a medieval Japanese shapeshifter is not for you. But if you want lush prose, romantic settings, and a poetry-of-the-soul book, run-do not walk-to get this. God, I wish I had written it!"
-Jane Yolen

"Steeped in historical detail, Johnson's prose is uncommonly musical; it captures the atmosphere of Japan's old courts while avoiding ostentation."
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Kij Johnson reminds us that the magic (and strength) of Fantasy is seeing ourselves in the mirror of the Other. Never has that mirror shimmered more seductively. Look."
-Terry Bisson

"A moving examination of passion and the gaining of hard-won knowledge¿this tale entirely escapes the constraints of standard fairy tales to stand entirely on its own as a celebration of that far-from-mundane thing we call life."
-Locus

"The Fox Woman is a wonderfully evocative and gripping novel, a book that will stay with you and resonate in your heart long after the final page is turned."
-Charles de Lint
