A Loving, Faithful Animal [9781788169608]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
New Year's Eve, 1990, small-town Australia. The mysterious death of the family dog pushes Jack, a veteran tormented by the horrors of Vietnam, into one of his periodic drug-fuelled vanishing acts. His brother Les remains next door, a gentle eccentric missing both trigger fingers, whose loyalties are increasingly torn between Jack and his wife Evelyn. This time, Evelyn lets Jack stay gone. She is lost in recollections of a vibrant youth as her eldest daughter Lani seems intent on misspending her own. And at the heart of it all is Lani's little sister Ru, who sees everything and yet is overlooked in the chaos. A Loving, Faithful Animal is an unforgettable interrogation of ruins, redemption, and reasons why, excavating an Australia rarely seen in literature.
AUTHOR: Josephine Rowe's A Loving, Faithful Animal was selected as a New York Times Editors' Choice and shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award. Rowe has held fellowships with the University of Iowa and Stanford University, among others and has recently been named a 2021-2022 Cullman Center Fellow by the New York Public Library.
