Novelist Gary Shteyngart is known for being an “enthusiastic blurb-writer.”
But nothing can possibly beat this one.
Writing about “Walter Potter’s Curious World of Taxidermy,” a book by Pat Morris and Joanna Ebenstein, which, as the name suggests, tells the story of Victorian taxidermist Walter Potter, Shteyngart said:
“Walter Potter’s Curious World of Taxidermy” is one of hte most important books I’ve read on Victorian taxidermy in months. It’s like Thomas Hardy’s “Jude the Obscure,” but with squirrels.” — New York Times: T Magazine
Rapper Cee-Lo Green, featured opposite Shteyngart in a T Magazine “Take Two” had this to say about the book:
“I can’t imagine the type of special individual it takes to do this. I don’t have any animals that are stuffed, but I’ve got some stuffed animals — a panther, a Rottweiler, a couple little doggies I’ve found along the way.”
Budding taxidermists can place their order here.
