The Art of Taxidermy

Sharon Kernot

  • awardShortlisted, The Text Prize, 2017
  • Lottie collects dead creatures and lovingly cares for them, hoping to preserve them, to save them from disintegration. Her father understands—Lottie has a scientific mind, he thinks. Her aunt wants it to stop, and she goes to cruel lengths to make sure it does.

    And her mother? Lottie’s mother died long ago. And Lottie is searching for a way to be close to her.

    The Art of Taxidermy is a heartbreaking verse novel exploring love and death, grief and beauty, and the ways we try to make sense of it all.
