    Spineless Wonders: The Joys of… by Richard Conniff

    The word "formication" describes the sensation of insects crawling over one's skin with an implied sense of horror and fascination. This book looks at the author's contact with invertebrates and is an engaging and humerous mix of natural history and human lore. The habits and idiosyncrasies of the moth, the leech, the ant and the slime eel are just a few of the hazards of being in contact with insects and invertebrates. Their bizarre adaptations and the work they get through to survive are described and also Coniff's hilarious encounters with the intelligent and eccentric people who study these creatures and their history are recounted. Black and white drawings, 222pp. 1997
