Editorial Reviews

Review

Very funny, dark and full of tragic power * Australian Book Review * A rich and humane novel * The Saturday Paper * A compassionate and unapologetically intelligent novel * Miles Franklin Judges' Citation * Josephine Wilson's novel, Extinctions, is whip-smart, full of unexpected moves and a wonderful cast of characters. From its first sentence, the prose exhibits an unselfconscious beauty, while the voice remains both compassionate and uncompromising. A powerful, memorable read. -- Karen Joy Fowler A novel as beautifully and intricately designed as the iconic structures retired Australian engineer, Fred Lothian, admires. An intellectual but deeply flawed man, he can't see he may be preserving the artifacts of his family's past while letting his family wither away. A masterful meditation on love, loss and the carelessness of extinction. -- Helen Simonson
