SummaryThe recipient of an Artist Fellowship from the New York Foundation of the Arts, acclaimed short fiction writer Victoria Vinton crafts a remarkable debut novel. Much like Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Hours, and other recent bestsellers, The Jungle Law fictionalizes the life of an extraordinarily creative person. Young Rudyard Kipling, privileged son of a well-connected British family, lives a life of luxury in Bombay. But when he is separated from his family and sent to live in a desolate foster home at the age of six, he develops ideas and attitudes that shape his entire worldview. When a 26-year old Kipling arrives in 1892 Vermont, a story is germinating in his fertile mind-the story of a jungle boy named Mowgli. Vinton's compelling novel captures the sights and sounds of Kipling's unique world while telling a tale that fascinates from first word to last, and veteran narrator Henry Strozier's skillful performance enhances this rich work.
