The intriguingly-titled Little Foxes Took Up Matches is the debut novel from Katya Kazbek, a bilingual Russian/English writer and translator. An arresting coming of age, an exploration of gender, a modern folktale, a powerful portrait of a family—Katya Kazbek breaks out as a new voice to watch.

“Unflinching, yet achingly humorous. . . . proving we can become the gods and goddesses this world truly needs.” —Paul Beatty
"A queer coming-of-age narrative in every sense of the word, Kazbek’s novel is twisty, tragic, and deeply charming―an endearing exploration of the stories we tell and the people we find in order to live."― VOGUE
"A coming of age story that is at times chilling and in equal moments heartfelt, and at the center of it, Mitya is simply trying to find his own way. Kazbek writes with a kind of urgency that makes her novel a true standout. Every page sparks with energy in this ambitious and original debut."― BuzzFeed
