Without Books

Animal Wife is dedicated to my mother, Pamela, who always answered my bedtime request for “one more book” with three more books. She’s fascinated by everything, without hyperbole. Hers are not passing interests, but deep dives into obscure subjects, from kaleidoscopes and secret societies to colonial beer-making techniques. For a selection of my mother’s books, listen to my 3-minute episode of the micro-podcast Without Books.
