This week we’re talking about animals. More specifically, animal people. Either you are or you aren’t. Are you a dog person? A cat person? Are you distrustful of that people who dislike animals? We often imbue animals with all kinds of characteristics, we deny them their animal natures as we try to make them more like us.
Charlotte Wood’s new novel, Animal People, explores some of those themes.

We’re also featuring a reading from emerging Sydney writer Beth Hill, who impressed a live audience last month with her short story, Fish.
