Description
For as long as humans have existed, insects have been part of our world. Yet we hardly know them—not even the ones closest to us: those that eat our food, share our beds, and live in our homes. This "beautifully written and slyly humorous" book (New York Times Book Review, 100 Notable Books of 2010) is an original and remarkable exploration of the ties that bind us to the beautiful, ancient, astoundingly accomplished, largely unknown, and unfathomably different species with whom we share the world. With an extended entry for each letter of the alphabet, Hugh Raffles shows us how insects have triggered our obsessions, stirred our passions, and beguiled our imaginations.

"As inventive and wide ranging and full of astonishing surprises as the vast insect world itself. Raffles takes us on a delirious journey, zooming in and out from the microscopic to the global, from the titillating to the profound, from Niger to China, from one square mile above Louisiana to the recesses of his own mind."—NYTimes
