Wo in aller Welt liegt Ballybucklebo? Endlich ist Barry Laverty fertig mit seinem Medizinstudium. Voller Elan tritt der frischgebackene Arzt seine erste Stelle an. Doch Ballybucklebo ist nicht Belfast, die Uhren ticken etwas anders in dem abgeschiedenen Dorf in Nordirland. Und auch an seinen neuen Chef muss Barry sich erst gewöhnen. Dr. O’Reillys oberste Regel: Sich niemals von einem Patienten etwas sagen lassen! Statt Schmerztabletten verordnet er lieber Vitaminpillen. Bald lernt Barry auch den Rest des Dorfes kennen: darunter einen simulierenden Bürgermeister, eine unorthodoxe Haushälterin und einen Hund namens Arthur Guinness. Ungeahnte Lektionen warten auf ihn – über das Leben und über die Liebe ...

Was fühlt ein Tier, wie lebt es und wie nimmt es seine Umwelt wahr? Um das herauszufinden, tritt Charles Foster ein faszinierendes Experiment an. Er schlüpft in die Rolle von fünf verschiedenen Tierarten: Dachs, Otter, Fuchs, Rothirsch und Mauersegler. Er haust in einem Bau unter der Erde, schnappt mit den Zähnen nach Fischen in einem Fluss und durchstöbert Mülltonnen auf der Suche nach Nahrung. Er schärft seine Sinne, wird zum nachtaktiven Lebewesen, beschreibt wie ein Weinkenner die unterschiedlichen »Terroirs« von Würmern und wie sich der Duft der Erde in den verschiedenen Jahreszeiten verändert. In die scharfsinnige und witzige Schilderung seiner skurrilen Erfahrungen lässt er wissenswerte Fakten einfließen und stellt sie in den Kontext philosophischer Themen. Letztendlich geht es dabei auch um die eine Frage: Was es bedeutet, Mensch zu sein.
