Timothy; or, Notes of an Abject Reptile: A Novel by Verlyn Klinkenborg

Few writers have attempted to explore the natural history of a particular animal by adopting the animals own sensibility. But Verlyn Klinkenborg has done just that in Timothy: an insightful and utterly engaging story of the worlds most famous tortoise, whose real life was observed by the eighteenth-century English curate and naturalist Gilbert White. For thirteen years, Timothy lived in Whites garden. Here Klinkenborg gives the tortoise an unforgettable voice and keen powers of observation on both human and natural affairs. Wry and wise, unexpectedly moving and enchanting at every-careful-turn, Timothy surprises and delights.
