Product description

Review

Dark humour courses through this lovable tale -- Lousia McGillicuddy ― The Sunday Times

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

About the Author

Josephine Wilson lives in Perth, Western Australia with her partner and two children. Her first novel, Cusp, was published in 2005. Extinctions, her second novel, won the Miles Franklin Award in 2017.
