'Fever of Animals is the story of Miles, an Australian man who is no longer an artist, and his two life-changing journeys: a holiday to Venice that ultimately costs him his girlfriend, Alice, and a trip to Europe, on the trail of the Romanian surrealist painter Emil Bafdescu, who disappeared in 1967. Dense and moody, this is a layered story about one man’s lack of self-knowledge, and about the people, places and memories that slip through his fingers.' (Publication summary)
