#69 The diary of Edward the hamster 1990–1990 by Miriam Elia and Ezra Elia

Published in memory of Poet, Thinker and noted rodent Edward the Hamster (1990-1990), this delightfully gothic hardback edition of his personal journals constitutes a celebration of his (very) short life. It's also very funny («Eight months old today. Oh, the things I've seen. The Wheel. The Tray. The Ball. The Whe- no, I forget.»). Complete with illustrations of our hard-smoking existential hero, this is both a book for anyone who has loved and lost a beloved pet - and a moving essay on the nature of suffering and the hamster condition.
