Synopses & Reviews
Once, bestiaries were instructional guides, gathered from the fables and tales told by travelers. They described beast and fish and fowl that few had ever seen. For the characters in this bestiary, each animal that passes by reflects a measured truth about love-between a husband and a wife, a child and a parent, a brother and a sister-at a moment of danger or discovery. Any Small Thing Can Save You casts a wise eye on the kinds of simple intimacies we all long for, and on the truest opportunities for real salvation.
