The Fox in the Cupboard : A Memoir
With a couple of weeks' unexpected holiday and no chance of going away, Jane Shilling, journalist, mother of one and resident of Greenwich, decided to pursue a childhood ambition and learn to ride. A teacher - Mrs Rogers - was easy to find. What she hadn't reckoned on was that Mrs Rogers was a Master of Foxhounds. So began Jane Shilling's "odd, late-blooming affair" with foxhunting. This is a book about searching for the place where you belong, about developing a passion for something when you thought it was too late. Jane Shilling uses hunting as a metaphor for self-discovery; but The Fox In The Cupboard is also a journey into the hidden landscapes of the present and the past.
