Lady into Fox (1922) is a novel by David Garnett. Garnett's second novel-and first published using his real name-was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Hawthornden Prize, and continues to be regarded as a highly original allegorical fantasy set in the modern world. "Wonderful or supernatural events are not so uncommon, rather they are irregular in their incidence. Thus there may be not one marvel to speak of in a century, and then often enough comes a plentiful crop of them; monsters of all sorts swarm suddenly upon the earth, comets blaze in the sky, eclipses frighten nature, meteors fall in rain, while mermaids and sirens beguile, and sea-serpents engulf every passing ship, and terrible cataclysms beset humanity." Lady into Fox is a modern fairy tale exploring the effects of the inexplicable on the lives of a young married couple. While walking in the woods near their rural estate, Sylvia Tebrick and her husband Richard enjoy the beauty of nature in the way only lovers seem to do. When Sylvia is suddenly transformed into a fox, however, their dream of bliss dissolves into a nightmare of confusion and terror. Back at home, they attempt to conceal the truth from family and servants alike. For a time, Sylvia seems almost human. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of David Garnett's Lady into Fox is a classic work of British literature reimagined for modern readers.
