Description

The 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.

Professional reviews

"Victoria Vinton interweaves fact and fiction, starting with Rudyard Kipling's move to Vermont in 1892 and adding an imaginary relationship with a local boy, Joe Connelly, to explore the birth of the Mowgli tales. Henry Strozier's performance has the sound and tone of a documentary. His strong unemotional reading adds credibility to the fictional elements, making them believable. While 26-year-old Kipling and his wife settle in Vermont to await the birth of their first child, he is also nurturing the seed of the story of Mowgli in his fertile imagination. Vinton's tale may well send you looking for a more complete biography of this fascinating literary giant. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
