The Dreams of Zoo Animals

The Dreams of Zoo Animals is a potent, well-observed story about the routes we have to follow to find our way out of the zoos that hold us captive. It offers an intriguing glimpse of the Australian psyche and a thoughtful variation on the familiar theme of youthful rites of passage.


Quill & Quire

The Dreams of Zoo Animals

One of those novels which comes along occasionally to startle and unsettle readers, and to challenge their perceptions about literature. This novel has the intense focus and suppressed power of Virginia Woolf's early writing.
