Margarita Brown is a seven-year old girl who wakes from a coma to find herself unable to speak or hear until she visits the Bronx Zoo where the voice of a giraffe penetrates her silent world. Margarita travels back and forth between the silent reality of New York City and the hallucinogenic fantasy of the African plains where a series of animals teach and torment her until one brings her back to her senses. Part contemporary literary novel and part supernatural fantasy, The Zoo is an exploration of a girl s awakening to a world that is filled with both beauty and brutality.
