Enhance your purchase
A compassionate and unapologetically intelligent novel ― Miles Franklin Judges' Citation
Smart, funny, wise, and delightful, Extinctions is pure and astonishing pleasure from start to finish. I loved this novel -- Lily King
Very funny, dark and full of tragic power ― Australian Book Review
A rich and humane novel ― The Saturday Paper
Josephine Wilson's novel, Extinctions, is whip-smart, full of unexpected moves and a wonderful cast of characters. From its first sentence, the prose exhibits an unselfconscious beauty, while the voice remains both compassionate and uncompromising. A powerful, memorable read. -- Karen Joy Fowler
A novel as beautifully and intricately designed as the iconic structures retired Australian engineer, Fred Lothian, admires. An intellectual but deeply flawed man, he can't see he may be preserving the artifacts of his family's past while letting his family wither away. A masterful meditation on love, loss and the carelessness of extinction. -- Helen Simonson
A really fine, deeply intelligent book with so much to think about and so much unexpected hope. ― starred Kirkus review
Beautifully written, with strong, memorable characters, Wilson's latest takes readers on a deeply satisfying journey and reminds us of our power to create change. ― starred Booklist review

I did like the unfolding of this story. Once J Wilson started showing us other players in the story, I was there! Wrapped up in the intensity of feelings like: belonging or not belonging, loss and grief, identity. And being a sucker for a redemptive story, I was not disappointed.
I am more than sympathetic to all things Aboriginal, I worked among them in three months as relieving pathologist for the NT, where my technician, a full blood, knew more than I did

So unfortunately, although it was too late to get my money back, I gave it up and deleted it.
