FOX GIRL A Novel By Nora Okja Keller Viking 290 pages, $24.95 There are stories you'd be foolish to enter without steeling yourself emotionally beforehand. "Schindler's List" and "Sophie's Choice" come to mind, both on page and screen, as does Tim O'Brien's "The Things They Carried," all of which require a shoring up in order to delve into the narrative and not be destroyed by what you find there.
