The splendidly titled Fever of Animals, the debut novel by Australian artist Miles Allinson, is a ‘voice-driven’ narrative par excellence, at the heart of which is a sensually evoked life. Not much happens in quantifiable terms. Nevertheless, Allinson’s distinctive, slyly amusing voice takes us on a dizzying journey through memory, grief and what it means to be an artist with integrity.
