Praise for Tove Danovich's UNDER THE HENFLUENCE:

"A heartfelt account of raising pet hens. . . Anyone who's mulled the possibility of setting up a backyard coop will find this the next best thing." --Publishers Weekly

"Not intended to be a how-to for amateur poultry breeders, Danovich's work does offer broad and compelling insight into how raising chickens transforms and enriches human lives." --Booklist

"Under the Henfluence clocks our obsession with chicken-keeping. Highbrow / Brilliant." --New York Magazine

"Share[s] the life-enhancing joys of the humble hen." --The Sunday Times

"A realistic and immersive look into our relationship with those beings in our care. . . Under the Henfluence makes it impossible for the reader not to think of--and possibly love--the idea of chickens in a new way." --Mira Ptacin, Modern Farmer

"I enjoyed every single page." --Marc Bekoff, Ph.D., Psychology Today

"A call to arms, but in an entertainingly written, well-paced way. It certainly makes you think." --Kate Green, Country Life
