Happy Book Birthday to Her Body Among Animals by Paola Ferrante.

We’re elated to welcome this incredible collection from Paola Ferrante, a fiction debut that has already garnered impressive buzz and attention from Quill & Quire, The Globe and Mail, and CBC Books. Ferrante’s 2019 debut poetry collection, What to Wear When Surviving a Lion Attack, was shortlisted for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award. In 2020, she was longlisted for the Writers’ Trust Journey Prize for the story “When Foxes Die Electric,” which appears in Her Body Among Animals.

Ferrante shared this video to introduce readers to Her Body Among Animals in anticipation of the book’s release.


Praise for Her Body Among Animals

“The women in Paola Ferrante’s sly and startling collection beguile us with their curiosity, vulnerability, and wit as they navigate unsettling metamorphoses that bring them closer to the vast expanses of the sea and stars and farther away from the mundane cruelties of mortality and men. Precise yet poetic, sharply observed yet compassionate and tender, these cautionary tales for future generations burst the bounds of genre and take us into new and exciting literary realms.”
—David Demchuk, Scotiabank Giller Prize–nominated author of The Bone Mother and RED X

“Paola Ferrante’s monster-haunted stories are as dark as a moonless lake—and as beautiful.”
—André Forget, Amazon Canada First Novel Award–nominated author of In the City of Pigs
