What would happen if we could understand what animals were saying? Jean McKay (The Animals in That Country), Chris Flynn (Mammoth) and Erin Hortle (The Octopus and I) have each explored this question in their latest books—with fascinating results. Harnessing both the surreal and the serious, these works pose inventive and urgent questions about our place in the world and what it means to be human. With Elizabeth McCarthy.

Recorded for MWF Digital in 2020.
