Waterstones Says

Exclusive Edition - includes additional essay

A standard edition is available here.

The first novel from the author of Three Women.

Meet Joan.

I drove myself out of New York City where a man shot himself in front of me. He was a gluttonous man and when his blood came out it looked like the blood of a pig. That's a cruel thing to think, I know. He did it in a restaurant where I was having dinner with another man, another married man. Do you see how this is going? But I wasn't always that way. I am depraved. I hope you like me.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Wow. Dark, hypnotic and horrifying, with a central protagonist in Joan who demands your deepest empathy despite every transgression, it's brilliantly written and expertly done. I loved it.' - Harriet Tyce, bestselling author of Blood Orange and The Lies You Told

'I don't think there is a writer alive who writes about the interior lives of women with the raw truth and intensity [Taddeo] does . . . Fearless, sexy, brutal and just forensically observed. She is extraordinary.' - Jojo Moyes

'Scorching, unforgettable, stunningly beautiful, Animal blew my mind and has left me reeling.' - Clover Stroud

'[An] audacious debut novel.' - Evening Standard

'A brutal, no-holds-barred road-trip thriller.' - Daily Mail

'Reeling. Stunned. It is ablaze with rage and beauty. You've captured all the rage every woman has been suppressing her entire life. Mary Gaitskill eat your heart out.' - Sam Baker

'Electrifying * Red

'Riveting . . . Propulsive, erotic, emotional . . . Joan is almost impossible to look away from on every page.' - Kirkus Reviews
