animal’s people

July 22, 2008

Without a doubt the best book I have read so far this year. Animal is the storyteller who goes on all fours in this book about life, love and suffering in the imaginary city of Khaufpur, whose inhabitants are still suffering from the fallout of a huge chemicals factory accident some 20 years ago. But how he tells it! It’s been a long time since I read a voice that grabs you by the throat, drags you at breakneck speed through his story and doesn’t let you slip an inch until the very end.

Go here for excerpts, here for the story behind the book and here for the man who inspired crazy, hilarious, genius, beautiful Animal.
