9780765303912: Fudoki

Enter the world of Kagaya-hime, a sometime woman warrior, occasional philosopher, and reluctant confidante to noblemen--who may or may not be a figment of the imagination of an aging empress who is embarking on the last journey of her life, setting aside the trappings of court life and reminiscing on the paths that lead her to death.

For she is a being who started her journey on the kami, the spirit road, as a humble tortoiseshell feline. Her family was destroyed by a fire that decimated most of the Imperial city, and this loss renders her taleless, the only one left alive to pass on such stories as The Cat Born the Year the Star Fell, The Cat with a Litter of Ten, and The Fire-Tailed Cat. Without her fudoki--self and soul and home and shrine--she alone cannot keep the power of her clan together. And she cannot join another fudoki, because although she might be able to win a place within another clan, to do so would mean that she would cease to be herself.

So a small cat begins an extraordinary journey. Along the way she will attract the attention of old and ancient powers. Gods who are curious about this creature newly come to Japan's shores, and who choose to give the tortoiseshell a human shape.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for Kij Johnson and The Fox Woman

"A magnificent book, powerfully and profoundly moving; in its moods and atmosphere, utterly magical, a genuine and unique work of high art. The Fox Woman immediately sets the author in the front rank of today's novelists."
-Lloyd Alexander

"The Fox Woman is one of the more notable fantasy novels in recent memory."
-Seattle Times

"If you are a smash-and-grab, blood-on-the-sword fantasy reader, this astonishingly lyrical first novel about a medieval Japanese shapeshifter is not for you. But if you want lush prose, romantic settings, and a poetry-of-the-soul book, run-do not walk-to get this. God, I wish I had written it!"
-Jane Yolen

"Steeped in historical detail, Johnson's prose is uncommonly musical; it captures the atmosphere of Japan's old courts while avoiding ostentation."
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Kij Johnson reminds us that the magic (and strength) of Fantasy is seeing ourselves in the mirror of the Other. Never has that mirror shimmered more seductively. Look."
-Terry Bisson

"A moving examination of passion and the gaining of hard-won knowledge¿this tale entirely escapes the constraints of standard fairy tales to stand entirely on its own as a celebration of that far-from-mundane thing we call life."
-Locus

"The Fox Woman is a wonderfully evocative and gripping novel, a book that will stay with you and resonate in your heart long after the final page is turned."
-Charles de Lint
