Summary
One summer's night, Mary comes home from a midnight ramble to find a baby lying on her back-door step. Has the baby's mother, Mary's neighbor, left her there in her acute state of postnatal depression? Has Mary's own longing for the child somehow transported her to the doormat? Or was the baby brought to Mary as a gift by the fox who is increasingly coming to dominate her life? So opens How to Be Human, set in a London borough full of urban foxes. On leave from work and unsettled by the proximity of her bullish ex-boyfriend, Mary becomes increasingly captivated by a magnificent fox who is always in her garden. First she sees him wink at her, then he brings her presents (she thinks they are presents), and finally she invites him into her house. And as he listens to Mary, Mary listens back. She begins to hear herself for the first time in years. Her neighbors would be appalled -- they only like wildlife that fits with the decor. But inside Mary a wildness is growing that will not be tamed. As the neighbors enlist a trapper, will Mary will save the fox, or the fox save Mary?
