"[An] astonishing and mesmerizing debut"

-Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)



"A mind-bending romp through a gender-fluid 18th-century London, Rosenberg's debut novel is a joyous mash-up of literary genres shot through with queer theory and awash in sex, crime and revolution.”

-- New York Times Editors' Choice Pick




"an action-adventure tale with postmodern flourishes; an academic comedy spliced with period erotica; an intimate meditation on belonging that doubles as a political proof." 

- Katy Waldman, The New Yorker



"an ambitious work of metafiction, a sexy queer love story, and a rigorously researched and argued piece of scholarship, all rolled into one."

- David Canfield, Entertainment Weekly



Confessions of the Fox is so goddamned good. Reading it was like an out-of-body experience. I want to run through the streets screaming about it. It should be in the personal canon of every queer & non-cis person. READ IT.”—Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties
This book will make you want to run out into the street, set a jail on fire, and make out with someone beautiful in the smoldering ruins of carceral capitalism, and that’s about all you really need to know - Sarah McCarry, author of All Our Pretty Songs, Review
