Little Foxes Took Up Matches By Katya Kazbek

Little Foxes Took Up Matches by Katya Kazbek is a powerful coming-of-age novel set in Moscow right after the collapse of the Soviet Union. When Mitya was two years old, he accidentally swallowed his grandmother’s sewing needle. For his family, this incident represented the start of a tragedy, as they feared it would lead to certain deaths. However, for Mitya, the needle became a precious possession that he carried within him, almost like a talisman.

As he grows, his life mirrors the uncertain future of his country, torn between its past and the promise of modern freedom. Mitya is unsure if he is a boy, as everyone tells him, or not quite a boy, as he often feels.
