In the world of Animal Envy (Seven Stories Press), by Ralph Nader ’55, a digital translation app has enabled different animal species to speak to one another – and, with the help of a “hyper-advanced converter,” to humans. After a global assembly called “The Great Talkout” is convened, 100 hours of network coverage is broadcast across the world in all human and animal languages. The resulting narrative is the subject of this book. Nader is a consumer advocate, lawyer, and author of six other books.
