Young NZ Writers' Youth Laureate Award Editor's Choice An absolutely beautiful debut, etched with a compelling narrative and layered with poetic spells. - Emma Shi, award-winning poet and author of Elsewhere This was all a long time ago, back when you had just discovered the stup...idity of days, and days, and days. There was the brittle-boned home at the very end of the dead-end street, a room of nostrilled violins, and Tasmanian tiger sleeping beneath the tree outside your window. You think you remember an old stone hall, a rib-caged ceiling, and a terror which filled the cold holes of your bones. You can't remember for sure. This was all a very long time ago. Told in a series of moving retellings over time, The Extinct examines what it means to remember and what it means to forget in the `stupidity of days' forever destined to become yesterdays. A tale of magical realism told in stunning free prose. Astounding for its originality and for the young author's clear-eyed maturity - Lee Murray
