On Air Book Club: Lady into Fox

Ray Marshall (1891–1940)

On The Point, our on-air book club discusses Lady into Fox.


This short work of fiction by David Garnett was originally published in 1922. It tells the story of a young woman who suddenly and inexplicably turns into a fox and how her husband reacts. Is it a story of unconditional love? Women’s independence? Humans finding their place in the natural world… or something else altogether?


We discuss these themes and much more with Margaret McCormick, Director of the Woods Hole Library; and Ellie Costa, reading specialist.
