Confessions of the Fox
A NovelBook - 2018
Scholar Dr. Voth throws himself into his work, obsessively researching the life of Jack Sheppard, a legendary eighteenth century thief. He discovers a mysterious stack of papers titled Confessions of the Fox. Dated 1724, the manuscript tells the story of an orphan named P. Sold into servitude at twelve, P struggles for years with her desire to live as "Jack." When P falls dizzyingly in love with Bess, a sex worker looking for freedom of her own, P begins to imagine a different life. Bess brings P into the London underworld where queer subcultures thrive. At last, P becomes Jack Sheppard, one of the most notorious-- and most wanted-- thieves in history. --Publisher.
