Originally published: London : Bloomsbury, 2018.
London. A fox makes its way across Waterloo Bridge. The distraction causes two pedestrians to collide - Jean, an American studying the habits of urban foxes, and Attila, a Chanaian psychiatrist. Attila has arrived in London with two tasks: to deliver a keynote speech on trauma, one he has delivered many times before; and to make contact with the daughter of his friends, his "niece" who hasn't called home in a while. Ama has been swept up in an immigration crackdown, and now her young son Tano is missing. When, by chance, Attila runs into Jean again, she mobilizes the nerwork of rubbish men she uses as volunteer fox spotters. Security guards, hotel doormen, traffic police - mainly West African immigrants who work the myriad streets of London - come together to help. As the seach for Tano continues, a deepening friendship between Attila and Jean unfolds. Meanwhile a consulting case causes Attila to question the impact of his own ideas on trauma, the values of the society he finds himself in, and a grief of his own.
