animal collection

Winnette tells stories that highlight the primeval power of storytelling.


"Colin Winnette’s second book of fiction, a collection of 25 [insert genre/mode here], defies classification. These stories deny straightforward morality but impart wisdom all the same."

Sonora Review


A man struggles to hold together his relationship with a fox. An octopus proposes a complicated sexual act. A naked mole rat cannot place an order at his favorite local diner. Humans turn into beasts and animals reveal their humanity in this collection of short stories that range from two sentences to ten pages. It's delightfully dark, hilariously upsetting, and, most of all, animally human.
