Fauna: Author Talk with Donna Mazza
25 August @ 10:30 am - 11:30 amFree
Longing for another child, Stacey is recruited by LifeBLOOD®, a company who offer massive incentives for her to join an experimental IVF programme. As part of the agreement, Stacey and her husband’s embryo will be blended with edited cells.
Set seventeen years into a very recognisable future, Fauna is an astonishing psychological drama with an incredible twist: what if the child you are carrying is not entirely human?
Ultimately, Fauna is a transformative, lyrical and moving novel about love and motherhood, home and family—and what it means to be human.
Donna Mazza is an award-winning West Australian author of poetry, short fiction and novels. Her debut novel The Albanian (2007) won the TAG Hungerford Award.
Donna is a senior lecturer in literature and writing at Edith Cowan University, and lives in a small country town in the South West with her family. Donna’s intimate knowledge of the landscapes and estuaries of Western Australia are featured in the setting of Fauna, in a world that is close to our own but underpinned with darkness.
