Daniel (dbfwnoonan) | 4 comments I read a book back in the mid-1990's where a squirrel gets into a young couple's new home in the suburbs. As the husband battles with the squirrel, he slowly becomes unhinged. I vaguely renumber the cover illustration having a roof-line, squirrel and upper branches of a tree, It may have been written in the late 80's, but more likely in the '90s. I doubt it was famous as I got it off a remainders table. I have tried Google, Amazon, etc.

Kat (tadpoledrain) | 135 comments OK I really hope you find this. What genre was it? Was it comedy, dark, surreal?

Daniel (dbfwnoonan) | 4 comments I would say it was dark comedy. The antagonist animal was not anthropomorphic, so not surreal. Psychological character study.

Where is it set? Country/region etc.
Where did you see it on the remainders table?

Rainbowheart | 19618 comments Sorry, this has no relevance, but I can't help thinking of that hilarious Geico commercial.

Set in suburban US. Do not recall what particular region. and unfortunately as it was more than 20 years ago I do not remember which book store I had bought it at, other than I lived in NJ at the time.
