Read full description of the books Pluto, Animal Lover:Meet the charming Pluto Hellbender Gerome, an ASPCA dog-walker, copyeditor of a pancreatic medical journal, and spin art artist. He is obsessed with cleanliness, his health, astrology, animals and whether or not they're being treated humanely, and with Wanda, a beautiful redhead and fellow dog-walker with a mysterious night job. Pluto's twisted sensibility, radical compulsions, despair at human behavior, and utopian dreams - realized with the help of his pet raven, Sunshine - drive the novel toward a climax that is as inevitable as it is surprising. At once dark comedy and psychological suspense, Pluto, Animal Lover introduces a character you will never forget and a writer with one of the most daring and distinctive voices in contemporary literature.
