Mehso-so

The thing with anthologies like the quarterly Granta publications is that they‘re always going to be a mixed bag. There were 2 stand-out essays in this collection of 32 animal-themed works, Aman Sethi‘s Tyger Tyger (about the impact on villages of India‘s tiger reserve policy) and Cal Flynn‘s Winterkill, about management of the deer population in Scotland.

This was my #BookSpin for June @TheAromaofBooks

Compelling, challenging short pieces on the animal kingdom. Through both fiction and non-fiction the authors in this collection explore the complexity of the relationship between humans and the animals we share this earth with. It is at times confronting, but always thoughtful reading. I was impressed. Slaughterhouse, The Taxidermy Museum, and Winterkill were standouts for me. #readharder2020
