If you’re not a member of The Good Book Appreciation Society but would like to read the interview I did on the site yesterday, Lisa Lazarus has kindly posted it on the Greg Lazarus blog. We had some fun with it.
“In green Lion I wanted to examine the other side of our relationship with the natural world: the fact that we are also rapidly emptying it of many of our fellow creatures. I wanted to write about how, as we lose these companions, we seem to also revere them more, and give them intense, almost religious or fetishistic significance. Many humans are animal crazy in a way we never were when we actually dealt with animals in our daily lives.”
