9780316038393: Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary

Featuring David Sedaris's unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life.

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.

With original illustrations by Ian Falconer, author of the bestselling Olivia series of children's books, these stories are David Sedaris at his most observant, poignant, and surprising.

About the Author:

David Sedaris is a regular contributor to The New Yorker and Public Radio International's This American Life. He is the author of the books When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked, and Barrel Fever.

From AudioFile:

David Sedaris's dark fables aren't warm or fuzzy--instead, they have bark AND bite. Talking animals stand in for people, saying and doing all the base things humans are capable of inflicting on each other. Sedaris, always so good at reading his own material, narrates just a few of the stories in this collection, while Elaine Stritch, Dylan Baker, and Siân Phillips take turns ably narrating the rest. Stritch, especially, seems to flawlessly channel Sedaris, hitting every sardonic note perfectly and even sounding sometimes uncannily like the author (or maybe it's the other way around). Together with illustrations by Ian Falconer (OLIVIA), the whole production walks the line between funny and disturbing. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
