Local Description

This book is part of Jane Rawson’s list of ‘Five Tasmanian novels that will make you see nature differently’. Jane writes:

If you love Tasmania’s coasts, you must read The Octopus and I. Erin tells the story of a breast cancer survivor, living on the Tasman Peninsula, but she also gives voice to the many other animals who make the peninsula their home – seals, mutton birds and, of course, the octopus.

 

 

Description

A stunning debut novel set on the Tasmanian coast that lays bare the wild, beating heart at the intersection of human and animal, love and loss, and fear and hope.
