Daddy, is Timmy in Heaven Now? by Sam Leith

In Daddy, Is Timmy In Heaven Now?, recovering pet-phobe Sam Leith pays affectionate tribute to pets from history - from Adolf Hitler's dog to Gerard de Nerval's lobster - while attempting to get to grips with a brand new pet of his own: a cat called Henry.


A terrifically funny and original writer... This is a lovely, moving book. Evening Standard Strangely fascinating and highly entertaining...Excellent. Guardian A highly original and witty testament to our faithful and fallen campaneros. Herald Bliss... Buy It. Trust Me. Independent
