About the Author

Emma Jane Unsworth is a journalist and won the Betty Trask Award for her novel Hungry, the Stars and Everything. Her short story 'I Arrive First' was included in The Best British Short Stories 2012. In 2019, the film adaptation of Animals, directed by Sophie Hyde and starring Holliday Grainger, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.


An utterly triumphant ode to female friendship * * ELLE * *
Animals beautifully navigates the complexities of intimate relationships. Never cloying or mawkish, it communicates vulnerability, dependence and tenderness, often in a single dazzling line . . . Like a riotous, careening night out, full of bellowing laughter and absurd details, this is a book you'll be talking about for years to come. It marks Unsworth as a tremendous talent -- Kerry Hudson * * Guardian * *

What makes this novel so fresh are the unexpected turns the story takes
and the vividness, urgency and idiosyncratic panache of Unsworth's writing

* * New York Times * *
Animals is a riot. A kind of drunker, swearier Girls. I loved it -- MATT HAIG
Hilarious, moving and poetic * * Glamour * *
A gloriously over-the-top account of female friendship * * Guardian * *
I wish I had written this book . . . Withnail with girls -- CAITLIN MORAN
Unsworth's story is more complex than an ode to the party or a call to responsible adulthood, and her characters shine with humanity * * New Yorker * *
Savagely funny, clever and wise. If it's not an instant cult classic I'm leaving the cult -- NATHAN FILER
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 * *
