Get learning, get lively with A Talk on the Wild Side: a wild ride—a real animal of a book
A Talk on the Wild Side is a collection of outrageous conversations, packed with irreverent insights, quirky humour and fulsome feistiness—just published by Irish–Canadian author, Olga Sheean. But it's more than just a funny book; it's a new way of looking at life—through the eyes of inanimate objects that you'd normally ignore but have an awful lot to say. An interview with a fossilized Tyrannosaurus rex, for example, reveals insights about memory that put a new spin on human dynamics and our 'dinosaur mentality'. It also presents a formula for the long-term survival of our inherently self-destructive species.
It's a real zoo—an uproarious romp through 32 imaginary interviews with some highly opinionated quadrupeds, as well as Oprah, Jesus and a rather subversive subconscious mind. It's getting rave reviews and has even been endorsed by a taste bud and a toaster, among others.
If you've never shared laughs with a hyena, chatted up a strawberry, or had a chinwag with a boomerang, this is a must-read medley.You can forget about all those gurus out there, telling you how to live your life. Wisdom is all around you and, after reading this book, you'll find yourself talking to the strangest things.
"A fantastic, thought-provoking read. You'll learn more about yourself from a park bench, a maple leaf and a newborn baby than you could possibly have imagined."
—Mike Tse, Canadian filmmaker/animator
"Most illuminating. Lighthearted and full of energy. I recommend it to all you bright sparks out there."
—a light bulb
