Summary,

A rollicking, globe-trotting adventure with a twist: a four-legged heroine you won’t soon forget
Elsie Bovary is a cow, and a pretty happy one at that—her long, lazy days are spent eating, napping, and chatting with her best friend, Mallory. One night, Elsie and Mallory sneak out of their pasture; but while Mallory is interested in flirting with the neighboring bulls, Elsie finds herself drawn to the farmhouse. Through the window, she sees the farmer’s family gathered around a bright Box God—and what the Box God reveals about something called an “industrial meat farm” shakes Elsie’s understanding of her world to its core.
   There’s only one solution: escape to a better, safer world. And so a motley crew is formed: Elsie; Jerry—excuse me, Shalom—a cranky, Torah-reading pig who’s recently converted to Judaism; and Tom, a suave (in his own mind, at least) turkey who can’t fly, but who can work an iPhone with his beak. Toting stolen passports and slapdash human disguises, they head for the airport.
   Elsie is our wise-cracking, pop-culture-reference-dropping, slyly witty narrator; Tom—who does eventually learn to fly (sort of)—dispenses psychiatric advice in a fake German accent; and Shalom, rejected by his adopted people in Jerusalem, ends up unexpectedly uniting Israelis and Palestinians. David Duchovny’s charismatic  creatures point the way toward a mutual understanding and acceptance that the world desperately needs.

David Duchovny’s Book Sounds Bananas



David Duchnovy mentioned earlier this month that he'd written a book. "It's a fable, like Animal Farm or Charlotte's Web; an allegorical story using animals for people," he told Rolling Stone. Now there's a full description of Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale, and if you thought it wouldn't be a book about a cow who united Israel and Paletsine, well, think again! From the official description:

A rollicking, globe-trotting adventure with a twist: a four-legged heroine you won’t soon forget.
Elsie Bovary is a cow, and a pretty happy one at that — her long, lazy days are spent eating, napping, and chatting with her best friend, Mallory. One night, Elsie and Mallory sneak out of their pasture; but while Mallory is interested in flirting with the neighboring bulls, Elsie finds herself drawn to the farmhouse. Through the window, she sees the farmer's family gathered around a bright Box God — and what the Box God reveals about something called an "industrial meat farm" shakes Elsie’s understanding of her world to its core.

There's only one solution: escape to a better, safer world. And so a motley crew is formed: Elsie; Jerry — excuse me, Shalom — a cranky, Torah-reading pig who's recently converted to Judaism; and Tom, a suave (in his own mind, at least) turkey who can’t fly, but who can work an iPhone with his beak. Toting stolen passports and slapdash human disguises, they head for the airport.

Elsie is our wise-cracking, pop-culture-reference-dropping, slyly witty narrator; Tom — who does eventually learn to fly (sort of) — dispenses psychiatric advice in a fake German accent; and Shalom, rejected by his adopted people in Jerusalem, ends up unexpectedly uniting Israelis and Palestinians. David Duchovny’s charismatic creatures point the way toward a mutual understanding and acceptance that the world desperately needs.

The book comes out in February, which seems like a cruelly long time to wait to learn more about Elsie.

David Duchovny Will Inspire You to Read

Image via wikipedia.org
The countdown to February 3, 2015 is officially on.
The description of David Duchovny’s upcoming book Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale has been released, and it describes what can only be seen as a truly magnificent piece of art. The former X-Files and Californication star has written a book he previously described to Rolling Stone as “a kids’ book and an adult book…a fable, like Animal Farm or Charlotte’s Web; an allegorical story using animals for people.”
OK, so that sounds intriguing, but plenty of famous people have tried self-indulgent projects outside their normal area of expertise and failed miserably. What’s to say this would be any different?
Well, here’s the synopsis of the book:
A rollicking, globe-trotting adventure with a twist: a four-legged heroine you won’t soon forget.
Elsie Bovary is a cow, and a pretty happy one at that — her long, lazy days are spent eating, napping, and chatting with her best friend, Mallory. One night, Elsie and Mallory sneak out of their pasture; but while Mallory is interested in flirting with the neighboring bulls, Elsie finds herself drawn to the farmhouse. Through the window, she sees the farmer's family gathered around a bright Box God — and what the Box God reveals about something called an "industrial meat farm" shakes Elsie’s understanding of her world to its core.
There's only one solution: escape to a better, safer world. And so a motley crew is formed: Elsie; Jerry — excuse me, Shalom — a cranky, Torah-reading pig who's recently converted to Judaism; and Tom, a suave (in his own mind, at least) turkey who can’t fly, but who can work an iPhone with his beak. Toting stolen passports and slapdash human disguises, they head for the airport.
Elsie is our wise-cracking, pop-culture-reference-dropping, slyly witty narrator; Tom — who does eventually learn to fly (sort of) — dispenses psychiatric advice in a fake German accent; and Shalom, rejected by his adopted people in Jerusalem, ends up unexpectedly uniting Israelis and Palestinians. David Duchovny’s charismatic creatures point the way toward a mutual understanding and acceptance that the world desperately needs.
David, you had us at “flirting with neighboring bulls.” We also are curious to hear about Jerry/Shalom’s conversion to Judaism (it’s tough for pigs to be accepted, we bet) and why Tom the flightless turkey thinks he’s so suave.
We never thought we’d be so excited for winter, but thanks to Mr. Moody, we can hardly wait.

David Duchovny wrote a kids’ book about a cow who brings peace to Israel and Palestine



Now that Californication is over and he’s free of that sex addiction, David Duchovny has some extra time on his hands. And so, like many celebrities do when they’re between projects, he’s venturing into the world of children’s publishing. But Duchovny’s book isn’t your typical gentle tale of ballerina mice or magic galoshes or whatever; instead, he’s using his celebrity soapbox to weigh in on the Israel-Palestine conflict.

The book is called Holy Cow: A Modern Day Fairy Tale, and earlier this year Duchovny told Rolling Stone that “it’s a fable, like Animal Farm or Charlotte’s Web.” The plot revolves around a cow named Elsie Bovary who teams up with a Jewish pig named Shalom and Tom—a turkey with an iPhone—to travel the world and bring peace to the Middle East. Here’s how the official description characterizes this motley barnyard crew:

Elsie is our wise-cracking, pop-culture-reference-dropping, slyly witty narrator; Tom — who does eventually learn to fly (sort of) — dispenses psychiatric advice in a fake German accent; and Shalom, rejected by his adopted people in Jerusalem, ends up unexpectedly uniting Israelis and Palestinians. David Duchovny’s charismatic creatures point the way toward a mutual understanding and acceptance that the world desperately needs.

Holy Cow: A Modern Day Fairy Tale isn’t due to hit shelves until February, but superfans of Duchovny and sensible solutions in the Middle East can pre-order copies on the Powell's Books website

David Duchovny’s Fictional Jewish Pig Will Bring Peace To The Middle East


I’ve always thought of actor David Duchovny as someone who must have a tremendous measure of raw magnetism in person, but it’s the sort of magnetism that is as overpowering for casting agents as it is untranslatable to film. We regularly see Duchovny, along with other actors (Keanu, that’s you buddy) and actress (Katie Holmes, how’ve you been lately?) of this sort, placed in roles which - in an audition room – must have seemed like sure-fire hits, but come off flat and robotic on the big screen.
So, when David announced the other month that he was trying his hand at writing for a bit I was skeptical, but optimistic. It’s always good to diversify and try new things, right?
Weeeeeeell, after reading a little more about Duchovny’s upcoming self-described “fable,” I’m convinced that his foray into literature isn’t simply going to be good, it’s going to be great. Hell, more than great. It’ll be a watershed moment for literature. It will – literally – bring about peace between Israel and Palestine.
From the official book description for “Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale“:
Elsie Bovary is a cow, and a pretty happy one at that — her long, lazy days are spent eating, napping, and chatting with her best friend, Mallory. One night, Elsie and Mallory sneak out of their pasture; but while Mallory is interested in flirting with the neighboring bulls, Elsie finds herself drawn to the farmhouse. Through the window, she sees the farmer’s family gathered around a bright Box God — and what the Box God reveals about something called an “industrial meat farm” shakes Elsie’s understanding of her world to its core.
There’s only one solution: escape to a better, safer world. And so a motley crew is formed: Elsie; Jerry — excuse me, Shalom — a cranky, Torah-reading pig who’s recently converted to Judaism; and Tom, a suave (in his own mind, at least) turkey who can’t fly, but who can work an iPhone with his beak. Toting stolen passports and slapdash human disguises, they head for the airport.
Elsie is our wise-cracking, pop-culture-reference-dropping, slyly witty narrator; Tom — who does eventually learn to fly (sort of) — dispenses psychiatric advice in a fake German accent; and Shalom, rejected by his adopted people in Jerusalem, ends up unexpectedly uniting Israelis and Palestinians. David Duchovny’s charismatic creatures point the way toward a mutual understanding and acceptance that the world desperately needs.
Yes, a pig that converts to Judaism brings peace to the Middle East. Keep in mind, we’re not talking about a children’s picture book here. “Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale” is 160 pages.
Screw “Animal Farm,” this deserves the Nobel prize for literature.
And if, by some crazy stroke of luck, this gets turned into a movie? Well, we’ve got just the pig for the role:

David Duchovny has written a book about farm animals uniting Israel and Palestine

WE ALL KNOW and love David Duchovny from The X-Files. Earlier this month, he announced that he was writing a book and described it to Rolling Stone as “an allegorical story using animals for people.”



Sounds grand. What he failed to mention is that it is called Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale and is about a group of farm animals who unite Israel and Palestine. No, really.
Per his publisher:

"Elsie Bovary is a cow, and a pretty happy one at that — her long, lazy days are spent eating, napping, and chatting with her best friend, Mallory. One night, Elsie finds herself drawn to the farmhouse. Through the window, she sees the farmer’s family gathered around a bright Box God — and what the Box God reveals about something called an “industrial meat farm” shakes Elsie’s understanding of her world to its core.

A lot to digest here. Cows, Box Gods, industrial meat farms. Moving on.

"There’s only one solution: escape to a better, safer world. And so a motley crew is formed: Elsie; Jerry — excuse me, Shalom — a cranky, Torah-reading pig who’s recently converted to Judaism; and Tom, a suave turkey who can’t fly, but who can work an iPhone with his beak.

A pig who converts to Judaism. Gotcha.

"Elsie is our wise-cracking, pop-culture-reference-dropping, slyly witty narrator; Tom — who does eventually learn to fly (sort of) — dispenses psychiatric advice in a fake German accent; and Shalom, rejected by his adopted people in Jerusalem, ends up unexpectedly uniting Israelis and Palestinians.

So, the Jewish pig ends up brokering peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Okay.

"David Duchovny’s charismatic creatures point the way toward a mutual understanding and acceptance that the world desperately needs.

This is what we’ve been missing, everybody – David Duchovny’s book! With it, we can finally achieve peace, love and understanding.



Thank you, David.
