The brilliantly quirky David Sedaris returns with a book of acerbic and outrageously funny stories about animals who have unmistakably human failings, with a hilarious new story for the paperback edition.
This collection of sharply observed animal-themed tales is a delight, told with David Sedaris' trademark blend of hilarity and good-naturedness. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of our … mehrown 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. weniger
