The Golden book of Bovinities

Robert Moore
Illustrated by Chris Lloyd

If cows could talk, what would they say?The Golden Book of Bovinities represents the collective wisdom of centuries of bovine self-awareness.On its surface, Robert Moore's fourth collection is a running ledger ofaphorisms, maxims and injunctions that lay bare the mystery behindthose docile cud-chewers. Deeper down, however, the book is anindictment against the inhuman cruelty we inflict on each other aswell as on the non-human world. A tour de force allegory about ourpost-9/11 world,The Golden Book of Bovinites contains some of thefreshest, funniest, most startling poetry you will ever read.
