Some brief overview of book

An enthralling, daring collection of stories narrated by animals caught up in large-scale human wars and linked in personal or poetic ways to the great writers of their time. In a trench on the Western Front, a cat recalls her owner Colettes theatrical antics in Paris. In Nazi Germany, a dog seeks enlightenment.

S. Navy writes a letter to Sylvia Plath. Exquisitely written, playful, and poignant, Ceridwen Doveys Only the Animals is a remarkable literary achievement by one of our brightest young writers.
