Ferocious Animals will remind you of who and what we are beneath all the cool digital interfaces- animals, burning with ferocity for a mouthful of life's flesh.

The thirteen stories in Luke Johnson's debut collection do not shy away from life's brutalities. Nor do they overlook those moments of genuine intimacy, humour and revelation that imbue the tragic with purpose and with pathos. Set in regional Australia in an era before mobile phones and the internet, these stories will remind you of who and what we are beneath all the cool digital interfaces- animals, burning with ferocity for a mouthful of life's flesh.
