Lateral Histories description

Can works of fiction inform us more effectively than non-fiction? Chris Flynn and Laura Elvery’s audacious works illuminate history and offer critiques of today. Chris’s fantastical novel Mammoth is narrated by the fossilised remains of a 13,000 year old wise-cracking mammoth. Each of the twenty short stories in Laura Elvery’s collection Ordinary Matter is inspired by a Nobel Prize-winning female scientist. With their lateral approach to history, these unlikely starting points have resulted in richly rewarding and wildly imaginative outcomes.
