    Elisabeth Tova Bailey tells the intimate and inspiring story of her year-long encounter with a snail. While an illness keeps her bedridden, she becomes an astute and amused observer of the snail's surprising nocturnal adventures as it lives in a flowerpot on her nightstand. Intrigued by the snail’s clear decision making abilities, hydraulic locomotion, mysterious courtship, and molluscan anatomy, Bailey takes the listener deep into the life of this tiny amazing animal. With wit and grace, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating recounts a remarkable journey of human and gastropod survival and resilience, and shows how the natural world illuminates our own human existence. Winner of the William Saroyan International Prize for Nonfiction, the John Burrough Medal Award for Natural History, and a National Outdoor Book Award. If you enjoyed Wesley the Owl, The Guest Cat, and Marley & Me, you'll enjoy this unique interspecies audiobook listen.

    Durch eine Krankheit ist die Journalistin Elisabeth Tova Bailey ans Bett gefesselt. Als sie von einer Freundin eine Topfpflanze geschenkt bekommt, unter deren Blättern eine Schnecke sitzt, beginnt sie diese zu beobachten. Nachts wird ihr neues Haustier aktiv, fährt seine Fühler aus, geht auf die Jagd und vollführt seltsame Rituale. Fasziniert beschäftigt sich Bailey mit Lebensweise und Biologie der Schnecke und erfährt Verblüffendes über ein unterschätztes Lebewesen - und über ihr eigenes Leben.
