'Animal is the first novel from the author of the phenomenal non-fiction debut, Three Women. Meet Joan… who as we meet her has just witnessed a man kill himself in front of her. This horrific event is the beginning of her journey. A dark, gross and uncomfortable story that reads like a page-turner. I was gripped. Most impressively, it reveals itself to be a lesson in empathy and understanding. It is clever and emotional, an incredible read, I devoured it.' - Recommended by Natalie Winterlich, Dubray Head Office.

I drove myself out of New York City where a man shot himself in front of me. He was a gluttonous man and when his blood came out it looked like the blood of a pig.
That's a cruel thing to think, I know. He did it in a restaurant where I was having dinner with another man, another married man.
Do you see how this is going? But I wasn't always that way.
I am depraved. I hope you like me.
