Rezension:

"Don't let the gory subject matter repel you from this charming account of the cast of kings, artists, biologists, circus performers, and ordinary folks who populate the world of taxidermy. Madden's investigation is marked by appealing candor, literary references, and atmospheric descriptions of (and fondness for) the subculture and its adherents...this book muses with verve and wit on the relationships between human and animal, art and artifact, as well as on the collector's obsession."- "Publishers Weekly"Madden...investigates the subculture of taxidermy...[and] can be a bit tongue in cheek...when he wonders "what would happen if the tables were turned?" and the animals put the humans on display... [A] sometimes chilling tour of an intriguing subculture. - "Kirkus Reviews"
