Overview
Life in a city can be atomizing, isolating. And it certainly is for William G. and Neaera H., the strangers at the center of Russell Hoban's surprisingly heartwarming novel Turtle Diary. William, a clerk at a used-book store, lives in a rooming house after a divorce that has left him without home or family. Neaera is a successful writer of children's books, who, in her own estimation, -looks like the sort of spinster who doesn't keep cats and is not a vegetarian. Looks...like a man's woman who hasn't got a man.- Entirely unknown to each other, they are both drawn to the turtle tank at the London zoo with -minds full of turtle thoughts, - wondering how the turtles might be freed. And then comes the day when Neaera walks into William's bookstore, and together they form an unlikely partnership to make what seemed a crazy dream become a reality.
