The book is ALMOST as funny as the original story that appeared in the New York Times last year. The spontaneity of the situation seems to be lost through revisions, additions and edits, but it's just plain fun. Even if you're not an ornithologist, The Chicken will win your heart.

In working class neighborhood Astoria, Queens, a chicken comes out of nowhere to reside in the backyard of the home of New York Times food critic William Grimes and his wife. Somehow the fowl makes a nest amidst the other creatures of the asphalt jungle mainly cats. Even more surprising to Grimes is how much he wants to keep the chicken safe. Soon chicken becomes the Chicken. However, ultimately for no known reason the Chicken vanishes never to return leaving behind two sad humans who still miss their bird.

MY FINE FEATHERED FRIEND is a wonderfully humorous story of how an animal can capture the heart of a human. Mr. Grimes looks into the history of the chicken while relating anecdotal episodes about his particular Chicken. The true tale is amusing and pet lovers will fully understand the author¿s emotions while laughing at the antics of the Chicken. Mr. Grimes has not laid an egg with the engaging adventures of Chicken in the city that feels more like an amusing parable or fable.
