Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Only one thing stands between Alexander Paine Wilson and his destiny...and it has long ears, spoon-like claws and a tubular snout....

Republican congressman Alexander Paine Wilson is determined that nothing will stop him in his campaign for re-election. Not the fact that he is a bachelor, not the fact that his main adversary Nancy Beavers - married, with children - is rising in the polls. Nothing. That is, until one hot day in August, he receives a large parcel via FedEx. Inside is a gigantic taxidermied aardvark.

This aardvark has a surprising history - from the Victorian naturalist who discovered it to the taxidermist who deemed it his finest creation. But for Wilson, the entrance of the aardvark sets off a chain of events that threaten to ruin his entire career.

Constantly surprising, brilliantly comic and piquantly provocative, Enter the Aardvark is a tale for our times, a biting satire with a tender underbelly.

Critic Reviews

"It's a long time since I have enjoyed a novel so much. Fresh, witty and smart, it also has a heart. What more could you want?" (Kate Atkinson)

"Enter the Aardvark sizzles with uproarious fun, from its snout to the sting in its tale." (Independent)

"The perfect tonic for testing times...deliciously astute, fresh and terminally funny." (Guardian
