THOUGHT PROVOKING FICTION
“The Awareness is an amazing book—partly because it’s such an extraordinarily gripping story, but also because I can think of no other recent novel that explores the minds of animals with such sympathy and compassion.” –Nathan Runkle, Founder and Executive Director of Mercy for Animals
“What a wild ride this book is! The writing is so beautiful and it was a doorway into animal consciousness. This novel stirs up every dark fear that what we do does indeed come back to us.” –Kathy Freston, bestselling author of The Veganist and The Lean
From Psychology Today:
“The Awareness is one of the most powerful and moving novels in the area of human-animal relationships that I’ve read in a while. Almost every single page made me stop and think about who we are and who ‘they’ (other animals) are and how we mistreat them in numerous different ways. But, what if the tables turned and ‘they’ became ‘us’ and treated us as if we were they? This is the basis of this thought provoking work of fiction, featuring among other animals, a bear in the Canadian Rockies, an elephant in a traveling circus in Texas, a pig on a hog farm in North Carolina, and a dog living with his beloved owner in New York.”
