Fosterling

ebook

A young man is found unconscious in a remote forest. He is over seven feet tall, his skin covered in thick hair which reminds onlookers of an animal's pelt. When he wakes in a city hospital, he is eerily uncommunicative. Speculation begins. Medics want to run tests on him, the media want to get his story, and the public want to gawp and prod. When a young woman befriends him and he starts to talk, his identity seems to grow more complex. On his release from hospital, events drive him into hiding. Yet how can a young man of such uncommon appearance find true refuge? A moving, compelling story about society and our reactions to difference, convincingly evoked, beautifully written.
