If you know what a bestiary is (no…not bestiality, you perverts), you probably think of Aesop’s Fables. The most widely-known, at least according to my amateur household survey of three, are The Tortise & The Hare and The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Kid’s stuff. But David Sedaris is most assuredly what English professors everywhere would call an ahh-dult humorist, writing about everything from his bizarre childhood to living in France with his partner Hugh. The first story in this bestiary, The Cat & The Baboon, ends with the line, “But what would it hurt to pretend otherwise and cross that fine line between licking ass and simply kissing it?” (SPOILER ALERT for the rest of my review!)
