"[A] love story and homage to the integrity and the otherness of our fellow animals . . . tender [and] engaging."--Frederic Tuten, "Bomb Magazine"--Frederic Tuten "Bomb Magazine " ""What I Don't Know About Animals "will make any pet owner, zoogoer or meat-eater wonder whether we really know anything about the other species we interact with on a daily basis. A mix of memoir, social commentary and exploration of anthropomorphism, Jenny Diski's book raises all the right questions."--Becky Krystal, "Washington Post"--Becky Krystal "Washington Post " "This book will really make you think about the complexity of issues regarding the use of animals."--Temple Grandin, author of "Animals Make us Human"--Temple Grandin (03/29/2011)Reseña del editor:
What does Jenny Diski know about animals? She's really not sure. There is, however, one thing of which she is certain: our relationships with and attitudes to animals are really worth thinking about. In What I Don't Know About Animals, she shows why.
She sets out to investigate what she does and doesn't know about animals. She remembers the stuffed cuddly creatures from her childhood; the animal books she read; the cartoons she watched; the strays she found; the animals who have lived and still live with her; the animals she has observed close up, and those she has feared. She examines human beings, too, and the way in which they have looked at, studied, treated and written about the non-human creatures with whom we share the planet.
Subtle, intelligent and brilliantly observed, What I Don't Know About Animals is an engaging look at what it means to be human - and what it means to be animal.
