|Editorial Review||"Outrageous....Wonderful...Sedaris's anthropomorphized creatures may seem domesticated, but this book, like his more familiar essays, is...wildly inspired--and a rip-roaring hoot." (NPR Heller McAlpin ) "Wickedly funny....These are some of Sedaris's best stories...The animals have given Sedaris's humour some new teeth: tiny and sharp, and sometimes even ready to draw blood." (Los Angeles Times Carolyn Kellogg ) "Wry and amusing." (Chicago Tribune Chris Jones )|
