Growing Attention for ZOO STORY

Most books that receive media attention get it all at once, right around publication date; a few are discovered more slowly. This is true for Zoo Story, by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Thomas French. Spotted by Laura Miller in Salon last month, it was also a People Pick and gets two major pick ups this week. A review in today’s USA Today calls it,

…both top-notch reporting and page-turning storytelling…French’s narrative reads like a mystery novel. What will happen next? Will politics win out? Who will end up leading this zoo? What will happen to the chimps that escape?

The author appeared on the Colbert Report last night.
