Quick Take: The Care and Feeding of Exotic Pets by Diana Wagman

As if a teenage daughter, a game-show host husband, and an aging mother weren’t enough, Winnie Parker gets abducted. In this gothic modern novel (lg Publishing, 270 pages, $16) the kidnapper is an obsessive herpetologist who, unbeknownst to Winnie, has been involved with her daughter. It’s a psychological thriller, Diana Wagman style: dark, absurd, and hysterically funny.
