The Fox Woman

by Kij Johnson
Release date: 2000
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy

Based on the award-winning short story "Fox Magic," Kij Johnson's The Fox Woman is a haunting novel of love and magic; of Kitsune, the young fox kit who catches a glimpse of a Japanese nobleman and resolves to snare his heart. She will embark on a journey that will change her, her family, and all the humans she encounters... and the magic she conjures will transform all of their lives forever.

Set against the backdrop of medieval Japanese society, The Fox Woman is both a retelling of the classic Japanese animal fable and a stunning exploration of what it means to be in love, whether fox or woman, and what paths one will take to try to find the mercurial ghost that is happiness.
