We’re delighted to announce that we’ve signed the talented Rebecca Giggs’s first book, After the Whales, a work of creative non-fiction examining the place that whales hold in Australia’s natural environment, our history, and our cultural imaginations. The book will consider our relationship to the sea and its creatures, and what it will mean if that is radically altered by climate change. Rebecca Giggs is an essayist and fiction writer whose work focuses on environmental themes. She grew up in Western Australia and now lives in Sydney. Her work has been published widely, including in Meanjin, Overland, Review of Australian Fiction, The Lifted Brow and Best Australian Stories.
