Review

‘A thoroughly entertaining set of essays on life in the wild! With nuggets of information on all creatures—from massive bears to invisible parasites—and countless anecdotes, each more uproarious than the next—My Husband and Other Animals is unputdownable!’ — Rahul Dravid, Indian cricketer

‘With insight, verve, and deep feeling, Janaki Lenin writes about the creatures around her, from tree frogs and snakes to her dog and husband. Her essays are a delight to read.’ — George Schaller, wildlife biologist, Wildlife Conservation Society, New York

‘The legendary M. Krishnan set a near-impossible standard for nature and wildlife columnists. Janaki Lenin has got there with effortless ease and the added appeal of a very feminine sensibility tromping both barefoot and in the most rugged footwear.’ — Gopalkrishna Gandhi, former administrator, diplomat, governor, and author

‘I’m an ardent follower of the wildlife encounters – some threatening, some hilarious, some heartbreaking – of Janaki and Rom in jungles in India and around the world and read her weekly column with some envy, wishing I was with them.’ — Timeri N. Murari, author of The Taliban Cricket Club

‘Janaki Lenin explores the familiar and unfamiliar aspects of nature with a knowledgeable sense of humour and a sharp eye for detail. Her columns in The Hindu follow the tradition of Gerald Durrell but also wander off the beaten track, blending personal and scientific observations on India’s diverse ecology and natural heritage.’ — Stephen Alter, author of Elephas Maximus: A Portrait of the Indian Elephant

About the Author

Janaki Lenin has always had an interest in animals but living with Rom took it to the stratospheric level. They lived in the Madras Crocodile Bank for a few years, surrounded by thousands of crocodiles, snakes, turtles, and lizards. Rom and Janaki made documentaries about wildlife in wild places for a living. When they moved to their farm in rural Tamil Nadu, Janaki thought it would be a perfect retreat after the many arduous months of filming. Instead, a whole new set of challenges popped up—from pesky tree frogs and adamant Russell’s vipers to a dog-eating leopard. She thinks she’s made her peace with the many wild creatures who have staked claim to their farm, but who knows what tomorrow may bring. Rom and Janaki live with four dogs, a pair of emus, a flock of geese and a pig. It’s her childhood dream come true.
