With bravura storytelling, daring imagination, and fierce narrative control, this dazzling debut introduces that rare writer who finds humanity in our most unconventional behavior, and the humor beneath our darkest impulses.

In these strange, funny, and unnerving stories, animals become the litmus test of our deepest fears and longings. In the title story, an elephant keeper courts danger from his gentle charge; in Miss Waldron's Red Colobus, a headstrong young woman in Africa is lured by the freedom of the monkeys in the trees; in Talk Turkey, a boy has secret conversations with the turkeys on his friend's family's farm; in Slim's Last Ride, a child plays chilling games with his pet rabbit; in Gallus Gallus, a pompous husband projects his anger at his wife onto her prized rooster.

This fresh, inventive debut will introduce Hannah Tinti as one of the most gifted writers of her generation. Enter her world at your own risk, and you will come away bewitched. Download and start listening now!

    " Very engaging and easy to get lost in. Each story, individually, would have made a great novel. These were different from the type of stories I usually read. They were edgy and took a lot of risks, including dabbling with fantasy (although I guess it's up to the reader to decide if the fantastical is insanity or not). Very good for a young writer. I'll keep an eye out for more from her. "

    " Pretty good little collection of short stories. Some of them cute, some of them graphic, but an interesting concept: Every story has something to do with animals (if if some are connected by the thinnest wisp). "

    " I think this book is really good. Rifka and her family escaped from Russia to America. But when they were in Poland buying the tickets to America. The doctor discovered that she had ringworm on her head. So she need to go to Belgium to cure her illness. Finally she went to Ellis island and entered the America. I think the title fit the story because in the book rifka was writing the letters to her beloved cousin, Tovah. So the title is call Letters from Rifka. "
