Six top books that feature animals

Sigrid Nunez's new novel is The Friend.

One of her six favorite books that feature animals, as shared at The Week magazine:
Flush: A Biography by Virginia Woolf

Probably the great novelist's least-read work today, this mock biography of English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning's cocker spaniel was an instant best-seller in 1933. Written as a relaxation after the hard labor Woolf invested in The Waves, the novella includes, among other delights, marvelous descriptions, from a canine point of view, of London and Florence during the Victorian era.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Flush is among Ellen Cooney's top ten canine-human literary duos.
