Holy Cow by David Duchovny is a comic delight that will thrill fans
of Jasper Fforde and Ben Aaronovitch. And anyone who enjoys a witty
wisecrack in a novel. Elsie Bovary is a cow and a pretty happy one
at that. Until one night, Elsie sneaks out of the pasture and finds
herself drawn to the farmhouse. Through the window, she sees the
farmer's family gathered around a bright Box God - and what the Box
God reveals about something called an 'industrial meat farm' shakes
Elsie's understanding of her world to its core. The only solution?
To escape to a better, safer world. And so a motley crew is formed:
Elsie; Shalom, a grumpy pig who's recently converted to Judaism;
and Tom, a suave turkey who can't fly, but can work an iPhone with
his beak. Toting stolen passports and slapdash human disguises,
they head for the airport... Elsie is a wise-cracking, slyly witty
narrator; Tom dispenses psychiatric advice in a fake German accent;
and Shalom ends up unexpectedly uniting Israelis and Palestinians.
David Duchovny's charismatic creatures point the way toward a
mutual understanding and acceptance the world desperately needs.
