What I Don't Know About Animals Summary


What I Don't Know About Animals by Jenny Diski

What does Jenny Diski know about animals? She's really not sure. She remembers the animal books she read in her childhood; the cartoons she watched; the meals she ate; the strays she found; the animals who have lived and still live with her. She examines human beings, too, and the way in which we have looked at, studied, treated and written about the non-human creatures with whom we share the planet.

Subtle, intelligent and brilliantly observed, What I Don't Know About Animals is an engaging look at what it means to be human - and what it means to be animal.

What a tremendous book ... As a species, Diski is genuinely a national treasure -- Stephanie Cross * The Lady *
A quirky, exhilarating expedition into the animal kingdom -- Kathryn Hughes * Mail on Sunday *
