When Fox Is a Thousand is a spirited retelling of an old Chinese folktale. In Larissa Lai’s lyrical and enchanting novel, a fox spirit comes to haunt Artemis Wong, a young woman living in contemporary Vancouver. The Fox brings with her the history of another haunting, that of the T’ang Dynasty poet Yu Hsuan-Chi, who was accused of having murdered the young maid servant who once worked for her.
Part history, part fairytale, part urban discontent, this delightful novel cracks open all preconceptions about Asian women, gender, sexuality, family, faith, and the flow of time. Smart, funny, and fully-imagined, When Fox Is a Thousand will stay with you long after the last page.
Originally published to wide acclaim in 1995 (a finalist for the Chapters/Books in Canada First Novel Award), this new edition of When Fox Is a Thousand, published by Arsenal Pulp Press for the first time, features an Afterword by Lai, in which she talks about the writing of this book, and what the book has come to mean to her and to others.
