Item description for Travel in the Mouth of the Wolf (Soft Skull ShortLit) by Paul Fattaruso...

Travel in the Mouth of the Wolf is a lyrical and highly visual modern-day fable. When a freak accident involving an infallible gambler, a truck full of chickens, and a gas pump leaves easygoing Iple deaf, he decides to travel to Antarctica. While wandering the tundra trying to reconstruct his hearing and memory, he makes a startling discovery below a sheet of ice. There he finds Isabella, a dinosaur and the last DNA repository of a wealth of human and prehuman knowledge. What follows is a mesmerizing detour into our species' fear and wonder at the nature of prediction in this comic yet harrowing novella in Soft Skull's ShortLit series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Travel in the Mouth of the Wolf (Soft Skull ShortLit)?

Strange story, but interesting...  May 23, 2005
I'm not really sure how to summarize this book. I had to read it for my intro to creative writing class, since my professor went to grad school with the author. It's about a guy named Iple, who lost his hearing and decides to go to Antarctica with a bunch of researchers. It's also about a shortstop in Brazil. And a dinosaur named Isabella who remembers everything that ever happened in the past. I don't think I would have ever picked this up on my own time, but the style was interesting to look at.
good read  Feb 6, 2005
Fattaruso is my brother's English professor at DU, so it was through him that I heard of this book.

I think overall this is an interesting and intriguing book. I love the writing style, and the storyline is very creative, though incredibly farfetched. It definitely keeps you reading, though I will say that a few chapters in the middle move a little slowly. The flow is very disjointed, but I think that's a lot of what makes the book so unique. By the time you get to the last chapter, it's absolutely wonderful.

Very good, entertaining read, and quick too, so if you're just looking for something on a rainy day to pass the time, this is a great book for that.
A mentally stimulating whirlwind journey  Dec 12, 2004
Travel In The Mouth Of The Wolf is a wryly written novel that blends elements of mysticism and even science fiction into a life-affirming journey. When a freak accident renders an easygoing young man deaf, he decides to take control of his life by traveling to Antarctica. On the way he encounters a bevy of unusual individuals. Twin little girl psychics seek to wrest control of the future of humanity's destiny, while the hidden secrets of a frozen dinosaur carcass may yet contain clues to make scientists dream. Part fable, part creation myth, always engaging and lyrical, Travel In The Mouth Of The Wolf is a mentally stimulating whirlwind journey from first page to last.
