Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The author offers a pandora's box of astringent and sentimental confections through a collection of stories, each featuring that pairing that society seems to both love and loathe: celebrities and animals. By a PEN-USA award winner and an Arthur C. Clarke Prize finalist. Original.


Review:

"You could read this collection as a critique--of our celebrity culture, of the uses we make of unresponding creatures--and Millet is sufficiently thorough to layer these resonances in a satisfying way. But that would be to miss the pleasures of the best of these stories: their quickness, their minor graces."

William Davidson, New York Times Book Review, 10/04/2009

Review:

"Wry one moment, chilling the next, Lydia Millet's finely crafted stories suggest deep pools of meaning beneath each brilliant surface."

Amanda Heller, Boston Globe, 10/18/2009

Book Description: COUNTERPOINT, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Original. 201 x 127 mm. Brand New Book. Lions, Komodo dragons, dogs, monkeys, and pheasants -- all have shared spotlights and tabloid headlines with celebrities such as Sharon Stone, Thomas Edison, and David Hasselhoff. Millet hilariously tweaks these unholy communions to run a stake through the heart of our fascination with famous people and pop culture. While in so much fiction animals exist as symbols of good and evil or as author stand-ins, they represent nothing but themselves in Millet s ruthlessly lucid prose. Implacable in their actions, the animals in Millet s spiraling fictional riffs and flounces show up their humans as bloated with foolishness yet curiously vulnerable, as in a tour-de-force Kabbalah-infused interior monologue by Madonna after she shoots a pheasant on her Scottish estate. Millet treads newly imaginative territory with these charismatic tales. Bookseller Inventory # FLT9781593762520
