Reviews

"In ''The Fox and the Flies, '' Charles van Onselen, a South African historian, stalks Lis every step of the way. As single-minded as Inspector Javert, he pursues his prey from cradle to grave, amassing a thick dossier so detailed, and so obsessive, that the reader ends up unsure who is the greater wonder, Lis or the author of this profoundly strange book."--William Grimes, "The New York Times"
