Animals, by Emma Jane Unsworth – review

Screen Shot 2015-08-22 at 3.13.20 pm

Animals is Emma Jane Unsworth’s hotly anticipated second novel, beginning in one tumbledown flat in Manchester and ending in another, and follows the Thelma-and-Louise style friendship between two wild and hedonistic flatmates. 

Best friends Laura and Tyler live together in every sense of the word: peeling each other off sticky dancefloors at 6am, returning home, concocting sausage-pasta-and-ketchup sharpeners and heading out to snort tequila slammers through straws again.

The slight snag is Laura’s fiancé , Jim, a recently-teetotalled concert pianist, whose efforts to mould his would-be-wife into respectability are starting to grate.
