Animal Behaviour by Amanda McLeod

Series: Fiction
Tag: Fiction

This inventive debut collection focuses on the complexities of human interaction through the lens of animal behaviour and quirky natural phenomena. The best of these tales blend transformative, fantastical happenings with a wry but soulful tone, reminiscent of writers such as Aimee Bender.

A really diverting read.
