Millet works a kind of spell … You could read this collection as a critique — of our celebrity culture, of the uses we make of unresponding creatures — and Millet is sufficiently thorough to layer these resonances in a satisfying way.
–The New York Times Book Review
From the book jacket…
Love in Infant Monkeys is a collection of short stories about famous people and their encounters with animals, including Madonna experiencing remorse after she shoots a pheasant on her English estate, Noam Chomsky in a garbage dump with a gerbil cage, Sharon Stone’s husband’s run-in with a Komodo dragon, and Thomas Edison’s reaction to a filmstrip he’s made of the electrocution death of Topsy, a rogue circus elephant.
