“A wise and intimate book about a solitary woman, a biologist by training, who befriends a fox. More than that, it’s the tale of a human mind, trained to be logical, meeting and being touched by Nature and coming to realise a greater truth. If Thoreau had read The Little Prince, he would have written Fox and I.” – Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi Catherine Raven has lived alone since the age of 15. After leaving home to escape an abusive father, she put herself through college and trained as a biologist, before building herself a house in a remote part of Montana, in a place as far away from other people as possible. But one day she realises she has company – a wild fox who appears in front of her house every afternoon at sundown. Against all her scientific training, Catherine grows to appreciate the personality and individuality of her newfound friend. As time goes on, the two form an unlikely and powerful bond – shaken only when natural disaster threatens to destroy their woodland refuge. Fox and I is a story of survival and transformation, a captivating tale of the friendship between two species in a shared habitat, battling against the uncontainable forces of nature on one side and humanity on the other – immersive, original and utterly unforgettable.
