The brilliantly quirky David Sedaris returns with a book of acerbic and outrageously funny stories about animals who have unmistakably human failings.
This collection of sharply observed animal-themed tales is a delight, told with David Sedaris’s trademark blend of hilarity and good nature. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of our own everyday interactions.
In ‘The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck’, three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In ‘Hello Kitty’, a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In ‘The Squirrel and the Chipmunk’, a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members.
Includes an exclusive fable not featured in the book.
