Read full description of the books:
Well, after reading this book literally every night (and by literally here I mean literally in the old true sense, i.e. every single night) for a year, I will say that GOOD NIGHT, GORILLA holds up. The message of solidarity and collective action in the service of dismantling the zoo-industrial complex is a timeless one (or, rather, a deeply timely one). I find the moment where all the animals, during their occupation of the zookeepers' residence, kindly bid goodnight to their oppressors, to be a deeply moving representation of the possibilities of a different world akin to the end of Starhawk's THE FIFTH SACRED THING, when the occupied tell the soldiers "there is room at the table for you." The animals are crying out for us to take our place in the ecosystem. It's all in here.
Pro-tip: Just because the day-shift zookeeper is already in bed when the night-shift zookeeper comes home doesn't mean she's not a zookeeper. And just because she's a woman zookeeper, it doesn't mean she's not a neoliberal, upholding the authority of the institution even in the face of a more obvious possibility for solidarity. Sorry for all the spoilers.
