The darkly comic musings of a deeply thoughtful rodent—the perfect gift for pet lovers and anguished existentialists of all ages.
Edward is a hamster—yet he contains multitudes. Trapped in a cage with a wheel that taunts him with its meaninglessness, Edward records the existential ennui that is the sum of his short life. His diary is an extraordinary work, filled with profound meditations on the nature of captivity, the emptiness of life, and the irrational will to live. This dark, pithy, irresistibly witty diary, with illustrations by acclaimed artist Miriam Elia, makes the perfect gift for anyone on your holiday list. It won’t take long before readers recognize that Edward is not just a hamster—he is a state of mind.
Edward the Hamster is a furry ball of angst, trapped in his prison, but determined to live his life. Darn it. Edward the Hamster is a quick but hilarious read of the daily adventures, not so adventures, romance, and observations of Edward.
Throughout the illustrated diary entries, Edward contemplates the meaning of death and life, and why his captors are so odd. Fun book for anyone who’s ever owned a furry little hamster and wondered went on in their little minds and souls.
