Gregory Heath's captivating debut vel is about Michael, a highly regarded taxidermist, whose personal life is at a standstill. With a string of failed relationships behind him, he dedicates his days to work and his nights to alcohol. When love arrives in the shape of a beautiful young art student, he needs someone to confide in. But the only person he can talk to is the mother he lost as a child, until an unexpected friend challenges him to face his demons. The Entire Animal is a moving meditation on the harm that is done when people cant communicate with each other. It is as well an exploration of our relationship with art. Life and death - in nature's world and ours - hover on the edges of every page, lending to this fine book their pain and their beauty, their demands and their solace.
