|Mr. Fox & Helen Oyeyemi|
Mary Foxe came by the other day – the last person on earth I was expecting to see. I’d have tidied up if I known she was coming. I’d have combed my hair. I’d have shaved. At least I was wearing a suit; I strive for a sense of professionalism.
From the cover, you know that Mary is the narrator’s muse, so I love how he just casually talks about her like she’s a real person who simply dropped by for a visit. You get the sense that she’s been absent for awhile, and she might be back to stir up some trouble. I’m almost halfway through and this point, and I’m really enjoying it. I can’t wait to keep reading!
