Tietoja tekijästä

Eliot Schrefer is a notable, best-selling young adult author. Schrefer attended Harvard University, where he graduated with High Honors in French and American literature. Schrefer's first novel, Glamorous Disasters, was a somewhat autobiographical tale of a young man living in Harlem and paying off näytä lisää college debt while tutoring Fifth-Avenue families. After writing another novel for adults, he turned to young adult fiction with The School for Dangerous Girls, about a boarding school for criminal young ladies. That book was selected as a "Best of the Teen Age" by the New York Public Library, and his next novel, The Deadly Sister, earned a starred review from School Library Journal. Schrefer's fifth novel Endangered, about a girl surviving wartime in Congo with an orphan bonobo ape, was a finalist for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature, one of NPR's "Best of 2012," and an editor's choice in The New York Times. ELIOT SCHREFER is also the author of Threatened, a finalist for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature in 2014, about a boy surviving in the jungles of Gabon alongside chimpanzees and Rise and Fall, the sixth book in the Spirit Animals Series. Schrefer's works have been translated into many languages including German, Russian, Polish, Taiwanese, Bulgarian, and Japanese. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

This was SO GOOD. I immediately recommended it to a bunch of my friends and family. So much information in this book was new to me -- it's almost embarrassing that I didn't know this stuff.

Very entertaining novel, weaving together SF tropes like 2001's hostile, deceptive AI (representing a character's "Mother," so invoking "Alien"), the distant Cold War influences of "2010," Blade Runner's doubting one's own humanity, the struggle to waken from hibernation like in Project Hail Mary, and the struggle to communicate across temporal resets ("Edge of Tomorrow," etc.).

We’re taught the natural order means male-female pairs for each animal on Earth. Darwin’s theory of natural selection only seems to confirm it—aren’t heterosexual pairings the best way forward for any species? But there’s more to the story than most of us know.
A quiet revolution has been underway in recent years, with study after study revealing substantial same-sex sexual behavior in animals. Join celebrated author Eliot Schrefer on an exploration of queer behavior in the animal world—from albatrosses to bonobos to clownfish to doodlebugs.
In sharp and witty prose—aided by humorous comics from artist Jules Zuckerberg—Schrefer uses science, history, anthropology, and sociology to illustrate the diversity of sexual behavior in the animal world. Interviews with researchers in the field offer additional insights for readers and aspiring scientists.
