CHOICE It represents an important contribution to the theoretical foundations of animal studies and narratology ... Summing up: Highly recommended.
Marianne DeKoven, Rutgers University In this excellent and original book, David Herman interweaves the study of narrative structures (narratology) with the cross-disciplinary field of animal studies in order to produce a powerful, complex new paradigm for understanding animal narrative. This paradigm empowers narratology and human-animal narrative, across a variety of genres, to join in expanding our view of narratively structured creatural worlds.
