Coach House Books, September 2020

In Christiane Vadnais’s debut, ten lush and bracing linked climate fictions depict a world gorgeous and terrifying in its likeness to our own.

“The sumptuous imagery and limpid atmosphere forms a dizzying picture of a world after human existence. This dark, sensual novel invites the reader to imagine nature thriving in the toxic aftermath of human domination, and makes for an essential addition to the recent crop of eco-fiction.”

Publishers Weekly

“Reminiscent of Ovid, Kafka, and Wells . .. [Fauna] depicts the hypnotic Darwinian nightmare our negligence and denial will lead us to in the coming years. ”
