So she left me alone, promising not to be gone more than a few minutes. I told my cat I was going to strangle her, but she paid no attention and continued grooming herself with her tongue." [After this setting statement] we meet the five-year-old narrator of The Hedgehog, who introduces us to his world: his house (with the djinn girl who lives in his bedroom), his garden (where he wishes to be a tree), and his best friend the black stone wall.

They deal with man's inhumanity to man (and to woman) and showcase the author's typical sharply satirical style."--Jacket."@en
