Bringing Them Back to Life by Carl Zimmer
The revival of an extinct species is no longer a fantasy. But is it a good idea?
A Box of Puppies by Lena Dunham
“Until I was six, I had no pets at all, despite trying to catch rabbits in a net at the park and lure turtles with Sun Chips at other people’s country houses. My first (and worst) pet was a newt that choked to death on a bad worm. Next came a hairless cat my mother bought on Greene Street. Both were poor substitutes for the dog I wanted but couldn’t have. We didn’t have a proper home. We lived in what was essentially one big room, on Broadway. And all my promises to care for the dog were futile: I wasn’t even allowed to go outside alone.”
William Wegman’s first Gif, a hypnotic puppy.
