"Combines the cruel humor ofCandide with the allegorical panache ofAnimal Farm."--Entertainment Weekly "Carol is the most unappreciated great writer we've got.Carmen Dog ought to be a classic in the colleges by now . . . It's so funny, and it's so keen." --Ursula K. Le Guin "A rollicking outre satire.... full of comic leaps and absurdist genius."--Bitch "A wise and funny book."--The New York Times "This trenchant feminist fantasy-satire mixes elements ofAnimal Farm, Rhinoceros andThe Handmaid's Tale.... Imagination and absurdist humor mark [Carmen Dog] throughout, and Emshwiller is engaging even when most savage about male-female relationships."--Booklist "Her fantastic premise allows Emshwiller canny and frequently hilarious insights into the damaging sex-role stereotypes both men and women perpetuate." --Publishers Weekly The debut title in our Peapod Classics line, Carol Emshwiller's genre-jumping debut novel is a dangerous, sharp-eyed look at men, women, and the world we live in. Everything is changing: women are turning into animals, and animals are turning into women. Pooch, a golden setter, is turning into a beautiful woman--although she still has some of her canine traits: she just can't shuck that loyalty thing--and her former owner has turned into a snapping turtle. When the turtle tries to take a bite of her own baby, Pooch snatches the baby and runs. Meanwhile, there's a dangerous wolverine on the loose, men are desperately trying to figure out what's going on, and Pooch discovers what she really wants: to sing Carmen. Carmen Dog is the funny feminist classic that inspired writers Pat Murphy and Karen Joy Fowler to create the James Tiptree Jr. Memorial Award.… (plus d'informations)

Interesting premise but I quickly got bored. A bit heavy handed. ( )
  mjhunt | Jan 22, 2021 |
Women all over have started transforming into animals and animals into women—in Pooch's household, she is now becoming a woman and the mother of the family has become a turtle. Things aren't looking good, so Pooch takes the baby and flees, only to end up caged with a number of others, being experimented on by a doctor and escaping again. What she'd really want to do is to sing opera.

This was a mostly funny book taking the idea that women are really a different species to an extreme and showing that men in general are useless in understanding women. ( )

An absurdist quasi-allegory in which all women are slowly transmogrifying into animals while pet animals are morphing in the opposite direction to become women. Pooch, who started as a setter and is now most of the way to becoming a young woman, runs away with the family baby after its mother, now nearly 100% snapping turtle, bites it. Out in the big bad city she has adventures as she pursues her dream of one day singing the lead in Carmen, eventually throwing in her lot with a revolutionary organization of vague aims. Finally she's reunited with her master, but all he wants to do is screw her . . . so she flees from him to the arms of a nice young opera singer.

The cover quotes stress the feminist aspects of the tale but -- although those are certainly present -- they struck me as less interesting than the more deftly handled critique of Christianity (or, for that matter, any religion anticipating the return of a "master").

Although I did enjoy this novel I may not have enjoyed it as much as I should because the whole time I was reading it I was fighting with the minuscule type of the Small Beer Press/Peapod reissue. Should I ever come across a copy of the original edition, which is presumably a bit more legible, I'll likely pick it up -- and I'll certainly keep my eyes open for other Emshwiller books. ( )

Fantastic! A feminist classic, or just a plain classic. ( )

Emshwiller's novel is a curious mid-career debut, but there are first novel faults and she has become an even more sophisticated writer since then. None of that spoils the sheer exhilaration of this work. It remains one of the most striking and powerful examples of feminist SF.
