"The draw of Animal Magnet is its outlandish characters and its narrative structure. Essentially, the book is a series of short stories threaded together by the family connection. Each one has a different structure and a different voice. Anderson wields a letter, play, manuscript, newspaper article, as well as the traditional story format, to tell of each character's wild experience. And wild they are. Each section plumbs the depths of man's animal nature . . ."  
- Manhattan Book Review

"Anderson is an adroit novelist with perhaps one of the most acute and unique senses of humor I've seen in print."
- Misanthropester
