I wish I had written this book . . . Withnail with girls -- CAITLIN MORAN Savagely funny, clever and wise. If it's not an instant cult classic I'm leaving the cult -- NATHAN FILER, author of THE SHOCK OF THE FALL Brutally funny and heartfelt. I loved it -- LAUREN BEUKES A hilarious, madcap meditation on grown ups who are not quite ready to grow up. Her writing is as brilliantly inventive as her characters' transgressions -- HELEN WALSH, author of THE LEMON GROVE A devilish tale, spun in angelic prose -- JOHN NIVEN Stunningly brilliant -- JENN ASHWORTH Animals is a riot. A kind of drunker, swearier Girls. I loved it -- MATT HAIG Casually high on insight, mercifully low on decorum, Animals is vital, funny, poignant and true. If you're looking for talent, style and the deep wisdom of misbehaviour, read it -- GLEN DUNCAN A gloriously over-the-top account of female friendship * * Guardian * * A fresh, albeit slightly fevered, depiction of female friendships and modern femininity in which traditional romantic entanglements take second place * * Observer * * It's not exactly subtle, but there is an irrepressible energy and verve to Animals, a veracity to Unsworth's no-bullshit prose and her main characters' barfly pseudo-philosophising, that makes the whole thing crack along like a Friday night pub crawl. Laura and Tyler are such engaging characters that it's hard to read Animals without cracking open a bottle of wine and joining the madness * * Big Issue * * Animals beautifully navigates the complexities of intimate relationships. Never cloying or mawkish, it communicates vulnerability, dependence and tenderness, often in a single dazzling line * * Guardian * * A speedy, exciting tale of female friendship * * Bath Chronicle * * Hilarious, moving and poetic * * Glamour * * Drink, drugs, men, more drink, more drugs. That's the heartbeat of this wham-bam, helter-skelter account of female friendship, featuring two women in their early thirties whose voracious appetite for wine makes Dionysus look like a lightweight * * Independent * * Gloriously debauched and wonderfully touching...a gripping, raucous read from one of Britain's most promising young writers * * The List * * This is a book that will make you laugh and make you think. It's a story about friendship and growing up, and the fun that can be had and the shit that you sometimes have to leave behind * * BookCunt blog * * What also makes Animals so fresh - apart from Emma Jane Unsworth 's lovely turn of phrase and ability to resuscitate the worst hangover you've ever had - is just how filthy these girls are * * Stylist * * Animals looks like a New Order record, its narrative fuelled by cheap white wine, the non-logic of the always-intoxicated and the sensuously evocative language of a writer who's been there....but it's ultimately a sobering and tender read * * Twin Magazine Blog * * Unsworth is a name to watch . . . Animals is more than a hymn to partygoing - it is a sharp study of the endurance of female friendship over romantic entanglements and life's challenges...alternately bleak and comic, Animals gives us the pain of the morning after the night before in all its unvarnished awfulness * * Financial Times * * Unsworth is a bright talent * * New Statesman * * Told through wild nights and the chaos of life as a thirty-something, this ode to female friendship is number one on my summer reading wish list * * Red Online * * The struggle Unsworth portrays so perceptively is that of the potential for friends, family and partners to have as much of a destructive effect as be supportive * * Big Issue * *Reseña del editor:
Winner of the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize 2015 You know how it is. Saturday afternoon. You wake up and you can't move. I blinked and the floaters on my eyeballs shifted to reveal Tyler in her ratty old kimono over in the doorway. 'Way I see it,' she said, glass in one hand, lit cigarette in the other, 'girls are tied to beds for two reasons: sex and exorcisms. So, which was it with you?' Laura and Tyler are best friends who live together, angrily philosophising and leading each other astray in the pubs and flats of Manchester. But things are set to change. Laura is engaged to teetotal Jim, the wedding is just months away, and Tyler becomes hell-bent on sabotaging her friend's plans for a different life. Animals is a hilarious, moving and refreshingly honest tale of how a friendship can become the ultimate love story.
