Animalia

Jean-Baptiste Del Amo

Animalia tells the confronting and compelling story of a peasant family in south-west France as they develop their plot of land into an intensive pig farm. In an environment dominated by animals, five generations endure the cataclysm of two world wars, economic disasters, and the emergence of a brutal industrialism. Only the enchanted realm of childhood-that of Éléonore, the matriarch, and Jérôme, her grandson-and the innate freedom of the animals offer any respite from the barbarity of humanity.

Animalia is a powerful novel about man’s desire to conquer nature and the transmission of violence from one generation to the next.
