Summary (From the publisher):

At the Gates of the Animal Kingdom is a collection of sixteen poignant stories about the rogue stresses that threaten the stability of modern women. From "The Day I Had Everything," in which a lonely hearts club for women throws a party for a member who is about to undergo a mastectomy, to the title story, in which a pathological pet lover begins to hear voices announcing atrocities committed against animals, these are witty, absurd, and beautiful stories about coming together, making do, and learning to live with the scars of life.
