Interesting review

Eliot Schrefer reviews Jasper Fforde's The Fourth Bear for USAToday.

"He tackles bear racism; the politics of Porridge Pushing ('a restricted-quota foodstuff for bears, along with honey, marmalade and buns'); the domestic violence of Jack's new neighbors, Punch and Judy; and the secret sex lives of otherwise well-to-do space aliens.

The Fourth Bear is brilliantly, breathlessly odd."
