Special Book Review: Literature and the Art of Being Human"Unsaid" a novel by Neil Abramson (2012)

Abstract

In this journal's book review column, I have mostly reviewed recent scholarly books pertaining to the human-animal bond and the research and practice of animal assisted therapies. This review, however, represents a special departure from those types of books, focusing on the power of fictional literature to inform and generate discourse and social change in the areas of human-animal interactions and ethics. After reading a recent novel, "Unsaid" by Neil Abramson, I was inspired to consider the ways in which fiction has led our interest and study into the humane treatment, minds, and emotions of animals.
