Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale

A cow that's read Homer, a turkey that can fly a plane and a Jewish pig who talks "porcine Yiddish". Sounds like something out of the X-Files!

Well it's all in this book written by X-Files star David Duchovny. "Holy Cow" tells the story of Elsie Bovary, a cow "born on a small farm in upstate New York". She is also the narrator, a very chatty narrator prone to digress, e.g. inserting conversations she has had with her editor about the book and advice to any would-be movie directors out there who wanted to turn the book into a film.

Anyway one day Elsie is attracted to the "snorting of the bulls" who are kept separate from the female cows, and as she goes to visit them she inadvertently ends up outside the farmer's house watching TV where she sees what happens to farm cows - "murdered, one after another".

This leads to an adventure, after a bout of depression of course. Rather than be killed she decides to escape to India where cows are treated as Gods and are not eaten. Along for the ride are Jerry the pig aka Shalom who wants to go to Israel where he will not be eaten, and Tom Turkey who wants to go, you've guessed it, to Turkey.

It might sound like a kids' book, but with the "sex, curses and maybe some potty humour" plus "all the religion stuff" it wouldn't be suitable for young children. The story is surreal with sentences like "I looked up to see a pig tottering upright on its hind legs and a turkey with a cell phone, waiting for me. It was time to go." It has jokes too and the story is certainly unique so if you like that kind of stuff then go for it.

Winter books preview: Morrison, Lehane, Hornby

'Tis the season to stay inside and wrap yourself up with a cozy blanket and a good book. USA TODAY's Jocelyn McClurg highlights 10 notable new titles to watch for between now and April.

3. Holy Cow by David Duchovny (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, fiction, on sale Feb. 3)

What it's about: A first novel narrated by Elsie Bovary, a cow who with her pals a pig and a turkey hope to escape their dinner-table fate as they journey across the Middle East.

Why it's notable: Holy cow! Who knew that Duchovny was on his way to getting a Ph.D in literature before he became an actor?

How sweet to dedicate his novel to his kids and pets, assuming that with Blue, Black, George Joe (TuxedoJoe) he meant his pets.

Thanks Sir.
