Political Animals, by Bev Laing

Third section (illustrated by a picture of a small boy standing under an elephant’s belly):

No matter how much you feed a wolf, an elephant still has bigger BALLS.
Russian popular saying.

One of those New Internationalist books. A series of quotes about how humans, especially politicians, behave like animals, and also how we should treat animals a bit more like we treat humans, illustrated with cute animal photos. I am sympathetic to the sentiments, on the whole, but I found the delivery rather sanctimonious. You can get it here.

This was both the shortest unread book I acquired in 2015, and the non-fiction book that had lingered longest unread on my shelves. Next on those piles respectively are La Femme, by Storm Constantine, and The Bad Christian’s Manifesto, by Dave Tomlinson.
