Today, we celebrate the release of award-winning author Cary Fagan’s new novel, The Animals! Read on to learn all about this playful and profound work of literary fiction and for information about the launch this Friday!
Happy Book Birthday to The Animals by Cary Fagan! A Most Anticipated Fall 2022 Fiction pick from CBC Books and 49th Shelf, The Animals maintains the air of a fairy tale while exploring the very real challenges of finding one’s place within society, family, and the natural world.
“Fagan’s novella distills enchantments from the ordinary while treating the forces that corrupt ordinary life (including religions, governments, and the bored rich) with sardonic incision. Each scene proffers a surprise, strung together to form a sometimes baffling, always delightful whole,” writes Michelle Anne Schingler for Foreword Reviews.
In anticipation of the book’s release, Cary Fagan recorded a video introducing readers to the book. Watch below or here. Enjoy!
“An absolute pleasure to read. Just a lovely, immersive, transporting experience.” —Advance the Plot
