The mythological and the mysterious are intertwined in Yangsze Choo’s novel “The Fox Wife.”  The story is set in 1908 Manchuria (in northeast China,) and we meet a fox spirit named Snow who assumes a human form to track down the person responsible for her child’s death.  Also in the novel, we meet Bao Gong, a retired teacher and detective who has a special gift to sniff out the truth and identify fox spirits.  So when Bao is hired to investigate a mysterious death, we see how the worlds of both Snow and Bao Gong begin to converge.

In this episode, Yangsze generously revisits her books “The Night Tiger” and “The Ghost Bride,” two favorites of mine.  She also shares more about her  Malaysian roots and how they breathe life into her work, offering readers a chance to consider the intricate ties between humans and nature. Plus you’ll get some great book recommendations and lots more.
