Book Review: Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary

This book wins the strangest book of 2016 award from me.  It is a bunch of short stories where the main characters are animals.  I get what Sedaris is trying to say here, but the book is still strange and the stories can be violent and disturbing.  I feel like the main idea here was people are animals and they suck.  In my humble opinion, there are other things I’d rather read that don’t have this message.  Can’t recommend.

An original collection of humorous fables features animals with unmistakably human failings, including a cynical cat struggling to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings, and a pair of lovers separated by prejudiced family members.
