First fox

My début story collection First fox has been described as “magical… captivating… uncomfortably strange.” Published by the UK’s award-winning The Emma Press and illustrated by Rachel J. Fenton, First fox was launched at the Auckland Writers Festival 2017.

Reviews

“a startlingly honest, warm and at times darkly humorous tone makes for exactly the type of fiction which is able to commentate and provoke thought on life in 2017…  A thoroughly recommended read.” Literature Works, UK

“this collection of unusual, fairy-tale like stories… brilliantly enchants and enthralls the reader… First fox [is] unique.” Cuckoo Review, UK 

“Sharp, true and always hinting at a larger world, the work has a fable-like quality… Devour this delightful book in one sitting then savour the stories all over again.” Frankie McMillan (My Mother and the Hungarians)

“This first collection is a joy.” Of Words and Wings, UK

“A shimmering, fantastical, insightful book of stories.” Bridget Simpson, NZ.
