Join Review bookshop for an evening of discussion on Wednesday 21st August to celebrate Animals Eat Each Other, the searing coming-of-age debut by US novelist Elle Nash. During her brief visit to the UK, Elle will be at Review to discuss her book with sex educator, artist and body positive crusader Ruby Rare.
Picked by the I paper as one of the best debuts for 2019 and described by Oprah.com as a ‘edgy, erotic fiction’; Animals Eat Each Other tells the story of a young woman with no name who embarks on a fraught three-way relationship with Matt, a tattoo artist, and his girlfriend Frances, a new mum. As she grows closer to Matt, she begins to recognise the dark undertow of obsession and jealousy that her presence has created, finding herself on a knife’s edge between pain and pleasure, the promise of the future and the crushing isolation of the present. With stripped-down prose and unflinching clarity, Nash examines madness in the wreckage of love, and the loss of self that accompanies it.
