Présentation de l'éditeur
“…Not quite full-grown, it's haunched down like a dog, tensed and coiled and ready to spring. We make eye contact for the merest fraction of a second, and in this moment I know exactly what's coming…."
A tragicomic collection of latter day Grimm's Fairy Tales, Allena Hansen's true life accounts won the IBPA 2015 Benjamin Franklin Award for best memoir/autobiography. "Chomp, Chomp, Chomp; How I Survived a Bear Attack and Other Cautionary Tales" introduces us to the bon vivant and social pariah Hunter S. Thompson toasted as "the distaff Hunter S. Thompson" and her sworn antagonist, Andrew Breitbart called out as "the coolest person in the room."
Offering herself up as a cautionary example, Hansen poses the age-old question, 'What makes a survivor?" Read this book and remain as puzzled as ever, but as you marvel at her uncompromisingly bad judgment and uncanny resilience, you just might learn something that could save your life.
Biographie de l'auteur
Bon vivant and social pariah, ALLENA HANSEN came to national attention when she had the bad judgment to get mauled by a bear, fight it off, and drive herself down a mountain for help on a slow news day. In the ensuing media storm she was featured on ABC, Inside Edition, The Doctors, Pet Heroes, The Bonnie Hunt Show, People, Oprah’s O, and too many tabloids, blogs, and podcasts to count, until achieving meme status in the all time top ten Ask Me Anything on reddit. com—just below but not beneath Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson. She lives on a ranch in California’s Southern Sierras with her horses, her hero dogs, and her literary pretentions.
