Although my own dead pets aren't that interesting , author Lenore zion's are. This collection had me constantly laughing out loud but that alone isn't what makes this collection superior. With striking honesty and obvious bluntness, she describes those moments and hidden thoughts most of us are too ashamed of or cowardly to admit we have. She has a gift of relating to her audience as she seems to be discovering her sentences at the same time we do. I love this book and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

I have to read this book in small sections because my body can only handle so much laughter. Its a must read, Lenore is zany, witty, and kinda weird, but it works!

Shoplift this book and then send Lenore Zion fifteen dollars in the mail. You know what I hate? Punk rock grocery bagger chicks. Lenore Zion does too! And she's made out with a guy with a split tongue just....because. I understand that impulse. Doing something repulsive because you'll loathe yourself for months if you don't. And then, of course, lying about it. Lenore Zion is not afraid. Terrified, maybe, but not afraid to tell you about things most people won't admit to themselves, even while eating a purloined banana in an empty shower stall. It takes a very special mind to fake a coma history, and Lenore Zion has that mind. Pulsing away in her skull. Read this book now.

"Beautiful Zion is bold: craning her elegant neck, flirting with her eyes, walking with dainty steps, tinkling her ankle bracelets." - Isaiah 3:16

Look, I'm not a shrink by any means, just a brain-rattled misfit midnight psychiatric crisis guy -- but I can tell you that if somewhere in your memory banks there lies a figment of a night spent in a sponge-like King-sized bed at the Thunderbird Motel with your father who is determined to teach you about frugality - what this means is you were born to someday write an awesome, awesome book.

The future is now!

The best praise I can give any artist is this: You don't sound like anybody else but yourself.
Lenore Zion is brave and crazy -- no doubt crazy -- but she doesn't camouflage her crazy the way so many writer-slash-mental health professionals do.
The thing that I kept thinking while I read her collection of essays was: "This is Dr. Zion. A PhD. in psychology. Isn't she afraid that a patient could read this? A peer?" (Then I remembered. Lenore is a psychologist in L.A.)

Even if you read five books a week, like I do -- you'll never read a book quite like this. Dead Pets is the best I've seen as to the reality of what mental health practitioners are really like -- Eccentrically creepy and sort of fascinating and gross -- wacky as a pack of cracked-out mallards flying over a Venom concert in the valleys of Vermont.

There's a new sort of non-fiction these days - writing about the warped and fractured reality in our heads, where we spend our lives trying to figure out how many of our fears are reality and how many of them are tricks of the brain. That's Lenore's journey. And what you take away is that though she tries to convince you otherwise, there's probably a pretty quality person underneath all that crazy talk

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In ten years time "My Dead Pets Are Interesting" will be considered one of the greatest memoirs or collections of personal essays ever published. This book is "A Walk in the Woods" funny. It is "Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs" funny. It is "Naked" funny. But it also acchieves more than any of those works. Lenore's existential dilema is a timeless one, she wrestles with the mundanity of her existence, with wanting to be a decent person, despite the fact that in many ways she is clearly not (at least in the way she would define the term), just like all of us. Zion is an admited compulsive liar, which makes it essentially impossible to be sure when the scenarios playing out are taking place in the real world, or simply within the author's admitedly overactive and depraved imagination. Buy this book. You won't regret it.
