Summary

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 best sellers, 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.

So much suffering

I miss the point of the work. Perhaps it's about the sorrow of Rudyard Kipling or perhaps its about the sorrow of a disfunctional rural Vermont family or the sorrow of its runaway son. One drery scene after another. At least the reader was good.
