Praise for Animals

"LePan has an astute understanding of the contradictions and weaknesses of human nature . . . [Animals] will most certainly make you look at that steak on your dinner plate a little differently." --The Boston Globe "A powerful piece of writing, and a disturbing call to conscience." --J.M. Coetzee "LePan's storytelling skills are on full display and the narrative brims with tension.... Animals is a brave and frequently fascinating novel, wrought with painful choices, harrowing journeys, and a deep passion for its subject matter."--Montreal Review of Books "An engaging story that asks deep and challenging questions." --Peter Singer, author of Animal Liberation "An engrossing, elegantly written, and timely contribution to the great tradition of dystopic fiction." --Kathryn Shevelow, author of For the Love of Animals "Devastating. Animals is a powerful novel, and a fully convincing one." --P.K. Page "Well written and engrossing. I found that the story hooked me from the start." --Angus Taylor, University of Victoria, author of Animals and Ethics "Provocative, original, beautifully crafted and achingly human, this is a novel that illuminates what we so called 'higher beings' strive to keep darkly hidden from our consciousness. No more, no more...destined to become a classic." --Catherine Banks, author of Bone Cage "A deeply moving narrative that can change your life--it did mine." --Thomas Hurka, Jackman Distinguished Chair in Philosophical Studies, University of Toronto "Immediately gripping and deeply moving, Animals imagines a future in which nonhuman animals have become extinct, and 'defective' once-human beings called mongrels have replaced them . . . In this powerful tale of a mongrel boy named Sam, Don LePan compels us to consider our own relationship to the fellow creatures that we love, abuse, and eat. Animals is an engrossing, elegantly written, and timely contribution to the great tradition of dystopic fiction." --Kathryn Shevelow, Professor of English Literature, University of California, San Diego; author of For the Love of Animals "Animals is an impressive book that makes a powerful statement--I think it is the Animal Farm of these times. It's also an accomplished work formally; a flowing narrative forms its central current, but brilliant shifts in style and narrative voice keep swirling within that current, and strong commentaries that are moral yet not homiletic keep forming eddies around it." --Victor Ramraj, Professor of English Literature, University of Calgary, editor of Concert of Voices: An Anthology of World Writing in English "As an analysis of the human capacity to reconcile sentiment with savagery, it's spot on: psychologically incisive, admirably disquieting . . . LePan may openly grind his axe, but what makes the book powerful is just how keenly that axe cuts through our ethical hypocrisy." --Jim Bartley, The Globe and Mail
