Bedridden by a mysterious illness, Elisabeth Tova Bailey was given a snail by a well-meaning friend who found the humble creature while walking in the woods. "I thought you might enjoy it" was the friend's explanation of the gift. "Why, I wondered, would I enjoy a snail?" was Bailey's initial reaction - but, as time went by, the unassuming little gastropod won her heart. The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating - the true story of Bailey and her snail - is funny and sweet, fascinating and inspiring. In warm and insightful prose, Bailey shares all sorts of scientific, literary, and philosophical details about the Neohelix albolabris, and she champions the common woodland snail's ability to illuminate the human condition and enhance our worldview. It's a deeply engaging story, gracefully told. (CH)
