Saddle up! Animals, the Spring 2013 issue of Lapham's Quarterly, is galloping onto newsstands on March 15th.
It's a veritable circus (and yes, we've got lions, tigers, and bears) this go around, with Mikhail Bulgakov on how to train a dog, Alfred Russel Wallace on the highs and lows of adopting an orangutan, and Albert Camus on a city full of dead rats.
Charts, graphs, and lists offer a glimpse into the relationships between men and their four-legged friends, the history of animal testing, and what, exactly, one calls a group of kangaroos.
Essays include Jack Hitt on the sex lives of bonobos, Frances Stoner Saunders on taxidermy, and John Jeremiah Sullivan on animal consciousness.
