The Animal-Lover's Book Of Beastly Murder / Little Tales Of Misogyny

Published by Diogenes as Kleine Mordgeschichten für Tierfreunde / Kleine Geschichten für Weiberfeinde
Original Title: The Animal-Lover's Book of Beastly Murder / Little Tales of Misogyny

Stories from The Animal-Lover's Book of Beastly Murder portray the murderously competitive desires of our most trusted companions. In this satirical reprise of Kafka, cats and dogs are no longer benign elements of a happy home but actually have the power to destroy it. 

In the darkly satiric, often mordantly hilarious sketches that make up Little Tales of Misogyny, Patricia Highsmith upsets our conventional notions of female character, revealing the devastating power of these once familiar creatures – The Dancer, The Female Novelist, The Prude – who destroy both themselves and the men around them.
