A novel of misunderstanding and paranoia, love and doubt, worry and hysteria: unsettling, unhinged, provocative and bestially humorous, 'Animals' is for humans everywhere.
Keith Ridgway's 3rd novel is a mental menagerie of misunderstanding, paranoia, looking out and love. Narrated by means of an illustrator who can now not draw, it tells of the unexpected and inexplicable cave in of a personal lifestyles, and the following obdurate look for a spot from which to take inventory. we're surrounded right here -- through detrimental or haunted structures, by means of artists and capitalists who flirt with terror, by way of writers and actresses and the offers they've got made with unreality, and by way of the synthetic, completely developed, scripted urban within which now we have agreed to stay out a model of residing. yet there are cracks within the facade, and there are stirrings less than the floorboards, and there are animals in all places you glance, if purely you'd dare to seem for them.
Unsettling, unhinged, provocative and richly humorous, 'Animals' is for people far and wide.
