A book that crosses with apparent ease the boundaries of philosophy, literary criticism (there are passages on Coleridge, on D.H. Lawrence, on Henry Lawson) and human-animal relations, by a writer recently described as `one of the most skilful, unusual and versatile of Australian writers' (Sydney Morning Herald, January 2016).
