Fairy-tale romances end with a wedding, and the fairy tales don"t get complicated. In this book, the celebrated writer Mr. Fox can"t stop himself from killing off the heroines of his novels, and neither can his wife, Daphne. It"s not until Mary, his muse, comes to life and transforms him from author into subject that his story begins to unfold differently.
