Pet is a dark and humorous short story collection that explores our relationships with children, lovers, and other animals.
You can get your copy in person or online from bookshops such as The University Book Shop and Time Out Bookstore. You can also order a copy from my online shop.
“Hectic, chatty, very modern New Zealand, very, very readable.”
“These beautifully crafted stories about humans and their animals and animals and their humans are sharp, taut, brilliantly written exposés of our untamed behaviour to each other. Kathryn’s writing is intense and merciless but totally entertaining and gripping from start to finish.”
"Charming and brutal ... Pet casts an unflinching but also tender light on the kinds of private griefs that often go unacknowledged. I highly recommend it."
