Vancouver, BC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/15/2014 -- Famously, Prince Charles once admitted to chatting up his plants, and the media (and general public) had a giggle over this endearing quirk. However, after readers dive deep into A Talk on the Wild Side—the latest book by Irish-Canadian author Olga Sheean—they might find themselves having a bit more in common with royalty than they initially thought.
A collection of quirky conversations, zippy humour and unexpected wisdom, A Talk on the Wild Side looks at life through the eyes of inanimate objects that a person might normally ignore but, as it turns out, are bursting with things to say. From a fossilized T. rex offering insights on human dynamics, to a strawberry with an uncanny ability to get to the heart of the matter, these 32 imaginary interviews are uproariously funny, puzzlingly wise and, above all, dazzlingly clever.
“You can forget about all those gurus out there, telling you how to live your life,” says Sheean, with a wink. “Wisdom is all around you and, after reading this book, you'll find yourself talking to the strangest things. Who'd have thought that a toaster could come up with such good stuff, after all?”
Ever shared laughs with a hyena, chatted up a strawberry, or had a chinwag with a boomerang?
Forget about all those gurus out there, telling you how to live your life. Wisdom is all around you, available in the most unlikely places—from dinosaurs to dandelions, mattresses to parking metres, popes to peanuts, toothbrushes to toilets, and plenty of other wise-guys you've never talked to before.
A Talk on the Wild Side is a collection of outrageous conversations, filled with irreverent insights, off-the-wall humour, and a surprising number of salient truths. Life will never be the same again—and you'll find yourself talking to the strangest things. (Just don't let anyone see you doing it.)
A Talk on the Wild Side has attracted rave reviews from readers ...and a few unexpected sources, too.
“A fantastic, thought-provoking read. You'll learn more about yourself from a park bench, a maple leaf and a newborn baby than you could possibly have imagined.” —Mike Tse, filmmaker/animator
"Most illuminating, lighthearted and full of energy. I recommend it to all you bright sparks out there. Get it and get switched on!” —a light bulb
