Granta 63: Beasts

Autumn 1998

What do they make of us, and how do they shape us? Paul Auster on living a dog’s life (‘a symphony of smells’); Hilary Mantel on the mongrel who didn’t realise that his owners had become middle-class; and Sam Toperoff as a tarantula. Plus: Joyce Carol Oates in prison, among men; and Martin Amis on sex without words.
