Product Details

Praise

“A frisky and erudite romp that rambles from discussions of myth and art to psychology and sexology … Dekkers’s book is never prurient, but it bears the unmistakable flair of a true enthusiast.”
LA Weekly

“Dekker’s own dirty mind is on delightful display in Dearest Pet, one of the most engaging books likely ever to have been written on the subject of, ahem, bestiality … Dearest Pet is an eclectic and erudite series of reflections on the sexual imagination, containing intriguing ideas on the meaning of human identity; examinations of the erotic powers of leather and fur; discussions of cross-species sexuality in writing and art, from Leda the Swan to King Kong; and presentations of some practical problems.”
LA Reader

“[Midas Dekkers] writes in a fluent, virtuoso, playful style, with striking comparisons, neat formulations and most of all with great flair. He has an unsurpassed gift for unearthing the oddest details in the biological field; his view of animals is unsentimental, but not without feeling, and some of his short sketches rank with the most moving literature on animals.”
NRC Handelsblad
