Meet the Monsters: The Quirks of Creatures A to Z

As a kid, I read scores of books about the Loch Ness monster, but I never really felt like I got to know him very well. Sure, he’s a plesiosaur who’s learned to weather the cold, subsist on seal meat, and avoid the paparazzi with aplomb, but who is he really? In Meet the Monsters, I plumb Nessie’s and the other creatures’ inner depths, eschewing shop-worn descriptions of horns and claws and fire-breath for tales of high school crushes, office politics, and the power of premium cable. Meet the Monsters is about neuroses and disappointments, obsessions, vanities, and secret ambitions. It’s about all the minutia that makes the monster truly human.
