When her body keeps her bedridden, Elisabeth Tova Bailey is gifted with a snail as her bedside companion in her memoir, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating. At first a mere curiosity, Bailey becomes attached to the little brown snail. The snail keeps her mind busy while her body is unable to cooperate.
