JORDY ROSENBERG: CONFESSIONS OF THE FOX
Swashbuckling folk hero Jack Sheppard gets a postmodern makeover in Jordy Rosenberg’s Confessions of the Fox. The story swirls around a transgender academic who discovers a long-lost, gender-defying exposé of the 18th Century London renegade’s adventures.
It has been called “a cunning metafiction of vulpine versatility” (The New Yorker), “so goddamned good” (Carmen Maria Machado), and “a joyous mash-up of literary genres shot through with queer theory and awash in sex, crime, and revolution” (The New York Times).
Rosenberg discusses his daring debut in conversation with Peter Polites.
