Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the story of how, one by one, a man found himself a family. Almost nowhere in fiction is there a stranger, dearer, or funnier family--and the life that the members of The Animal Familylive together, there in the wilderness beside the sea, is as extraordinary and as enchanting as the family itself.

When he died, in 1965, at the age of 51, Randall Jarrell was one of the most highly regarded literary figures of this time. Here is a new edition of his beloved tale of a lonely hunter and how he acquires a family. "Like many of the great books of fantasy, The Animal Family was written by a poet.
