Animals and celebs

The Globe reviews Lydia Millet’s short story collection Love in Infant Monkeys.

The relationship we have to animals is equally based in fantasy. As with celebrities, who march across our TV sets all day and night, the access we have to animals, from the family pet to the lion enclosure at the zoo, engenders feelings of intimacy. Yet their inner worlds remain unknowable, and our understanding of the furred and feathered is the same as it is of the rich and famous, essentially fiction filtered through a lens of speculation.
