The Essay: Becoming Animal

The Essay: Becoming Animal



In our world of dissolving distinctions, five contemporary writers investigate the boundaries between animal and human, choosing a species from the myriad of non-human kinds, to become. With help from different animal experts, Isabel Galleymore clings to the side of a rock pool as a limpet, Sarah Kosar at the edge of a London park is a soprano pipistrelle bat, Toby Litt is the brown hare at the outskirts of a wood, Ned Beauman makes dams with the Devon beaver and this evening, Belinda Zhawi imagines herself into the world of the southern African plains zebra.
