Wild Child

By T. C. Boyle
Narrated by T. C. Boyle / 2 hours 24 minutes

This is the title story from the collection Wild Child and was originally published in McSweeney’s.

It is at the end of the eighteenth century, in the new French Republic, when the savage is first seen outside the village of Lacaune. The boy quicklybecomes a legend among the townsfolk. Is he truly a human child or a wildbeast?

“Wild Child” is based on the story of Victor of Aveyron, the feral child brought from theFrench wilderness to Paris in an attempt to civilize him. It is the story of a boy who, at the tender age of five, had his throat slit in the forest and was left for dead. It follows him from his capture by the villagers of Lacaune to hislessons with Jean-Marc Gaspard Itard, a doctor specializing in teaching thedeaf and mute.
