Overview

Meet the charming Pluto Hellbender Gerome, an ASPCA dog-walker, copyeditor of a pancreatic medical journal, and spin art artist. He is obsessed with cleanliness, his health, astrology, animals and whether or not they're being treated humanely, and with Wanda, a beautiful redhead and fellow dog-walker with a mysterious night job. Pluto's twisted sensibility, radical compulsions, despair at human behavior, and utopian dreams - realized with the help of his pet raven. Sunshine - drive the novel toward a climax that is as inevitable as it is surprising. At once dark comedy and psychological suspense, Pluto, Animal Lover introduces a character you will never forget and a writer with one of the most daring and distinctive voices in contemporary literature.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When the narrator of this quirky first novel introduces himself as Pluto Hellbender Gerome, animal lover, Stover's readers will immediately be transported to the private hell of a young man more aptly labeled an extreme misanthropist. From the outset, Pluto sets about perversely proving his love for animals in a fashion horribly reminiscent of any nightmarish narrator created by Poe. All the while, this immaculately dressed control freak obsesses about Wanda, the woman of his dreams, who possesses her own peculiar and secretive past and present. Stover's brilliantly dark humor may win readers over, but her depiction of the at times downright gruesome acts of this self-proclaimed animal lover is guaranteed to earn her low marks with PETA. Squeamish pet owners may want to think twice about cuddling up to this tale.-Faye A. Chadwell, Univ. of South Carolina Lib., Columbia
