  • Under the Henfluence, Tove Danovich
    Agate Surrey, 9781572843219, March 28, 2023 (Non-Fiction)

    “This book will make you look at chickens like you look at your beloved dogs and cats. Under the Henfluence is an important and compulsively readable book about the history of our partnership with chickens, and the cost that we pay — both personally speaking and environmentally speaking — when we forget to look after their welfare."

    - Jason Jefferies, Explore Booksellers, Aspen, CO


    “Possibly the most entertaining nonfiction I’ve read in years. I guarantee a smile and/or an egg & chicken pun in every chapter. Even with all the specific details about the poultry industry, the read is light and easy and the author really makes the whole idea of backyard chickens a fun and funny prospect.”

    - Tanya Mills, The Book Bungalow, St. George, UT



    “If you’re ready to be charmed by chickens and their devotees, read Under the Henfluence. Readers will meet rooster rescuers, avid poultry expo attendees, chicken clicker trainers (yes, chickens can learn tricks!), and, of course, the author’s own backyard chickens. I never thought I’d cry in a coffee shop over the fate of male chicks or cheer for high school 4-H’ers presenting their pandemic-era poultry over Zoom. An utterly delightful debut.”

    - Emerson Perper, Curious Iguana, Frederick, MD
