Before I started reading, I thought this novel had been inspired by the works of Charles Bukowski: a drinking writer who lives in a bad neighborhood trying to make ends meet by writing a new book. Only this time it's about a bird. There was a period in my life when I admired Bukowski's work. That interest has since melted away, but you can tell I know what that author was writing about. So, when I started reading "Among the Humans", it was the familiar premise. However, as the main character is an enormous bird that is trying to mingle with (or meddle with) the human society, it sounded like a good parody.
Only it wasn't.
It turned out to be much deeper and mature.
Yes, it has some bits of fun. But it also deals with feminism, arts, hockey, writers, wrestling, strip clubs, bars, poetry, unrequited love and such. And most importantly, it's about those who are different from others and how others treat them. It really makes you think. And that's what impressed me the most.
I did not have much time, but this book is so interesting that I just couldn't stop reading. So I can recommend it to everyone.
