I’ve just romped through You’re An Animal, Viskovitz, by Alessandro Boffa, which is one of the funniest and most original books I’ve read in years.
If you can imagine Aesop crossed with EO Wilson, you have some idea of what Boffa has done. The 20 brief fables of the book tell the tales of Viskovitz, who is a different animal each time. His struggle for survival, his love life with Lara and Ljuba, and his rivalry with Zucotic, Petrovic and Lopez are constants, but each is defracted through the lens of accurate biology and animal behavior.
Uncategorizable and unmissable.
