I, Animal by Daniel MacIvor
Available in both digital and paperback versions - please select format above before adding to cart.
Three riveting monologues from acclaimed author Daniel MacIvor that explore identity with tremendous insight and dark humour. "Man in Scrubs" follows the story of a queer black nurse who is getting awfully tired of being put in a box. He's queer, not gay, and he'll tell you the difference. He's always been the outcast, and constantly finds himself at the bottom of any and every hierarchy. With his patience waning, he confronts what it means to be an outsider, and, more importantly, what it means to take charge of one's own identity. "Boy in Hoodie" is the story of the "Dead Cat Kid," as he's known by his classmates. He's fascinated by death - curious about it in a philosophical sense - but he's not morbid, and he didn't kill a cat. But which is more important, the truth or perception? "Woman in Prada" centres on an attractive, middle-aged woman who enjoys the finer things in life. And now that she's no longer a suburban housewife, she's finally free to explore her own desires. But what if they are leading her to be with a much younger man? Can she choose to put social optics to the side and do what makes her happy for once?
