From Nine To Noon, 10:38 am on 28 September 2018

Melanie O'Loughlin from Unity Books reviews Theory of Bastards by Audrey Schulman, which is published by Europa. "A genre-crossing novel, featuring Frankie, a crabby scientist who hits the big-time with her research and then takes her generous grant to a cash-strapped mid-western research facility, where she hopes to prove her subversive Theory of Bastards by studying a group of bonobo monkeys. Original and deeply riveting, Schulman effortlessly explores much more than our relationship to animals and unquestioning technological advancement, with a deft touch she looks into the very heart of why we are here."
