Wild Abandon

book | Fiction | 2021
ANZ → Allen & Unwin Pty (Ed. Jane Palfreyman)

Inspired by the true story of a private American zoo, WILD ABANDON sees a young Australian man drawn into a powerful journey of identity, love and loss. A brilliantly written and ambitious novel, hotly contested in a seven-way auction, from Stella Prize winner Emily Bitto.

‘Quite simply, this is one of the best novels I have ever read. WILD ABANDON is dazzlingly original ... astonishing, transformative and cataclysmic, written in sentences so stunning I couldn’t help read them again and again. A work of extraordinary talent and vision.’
Jane Palfreyman, Publisher
