Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk

A Modest Bestiary

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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.

I love David Sedaris but...

I love David Sedaris but this is the worst book I've ever tried to read. I forced myself to read about half of the stories in this collection of shock tales thinking I was going to 'get it' soon. Nope. Why write a book of stories that made animals look worse than people in one horrific crapload of nonsense and cruel intent after another. Now I'm scared to read his next one even though I totally loved all the ones before this. So horrible.

I want my money back - it feels like I got mugged in the alley

David, man, I love everything else you've done - sorry.
