The New Animals
Set in the Auckland fashion scene in 2016, the story moves over the course of one night through the hopes, misapprehensions, resentments, and regrets of a small group of fashion workers divided by generation and class. The young and rich act like nothing can touch them; the tired Gen Xers feel forever adrift. They are caught up in the small dramas of their lives, while all around them the world is fast becoming unhabitable. Like a contemporary heir to Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse, this is a brilliant and unforgettable dive beneath the surface of life, uncovering the common ground of humanity, as well as the common plight.
