Lisa Taddeo’s debut novel Animal is set to change how we think about madness and trauma. A brilliant, brazen and daring debut novel, Animal opens with a self-inflicted gunshot to the head of an unrequited lover and becomes a road-trip to California, centring on a woman who is driven to extremes by the violence of her past. In conversation with Hadley Freeman, Lisa explores what drives women to extremes – and how they can take back power.
