Entry updated 19 July 2021. Tagged: Author.

(1963-    ) Canadian author whose sixth novel, the Near Future Theory of Bastards (2018), focuses primarily on a speculative study, and complex intercourse with, a family of bonobos (see Apes as Human; Biology; Zoo) caged in a research institute; the free-form non-agonistic Sex enjoyed by these "animals" provides a model for the human researcher at the heart of the tale, which is set in a world more and more intensely beholden to intervening Communications bots. A sudden savage series of events generated by Climate Change force the humans and the bonobos to reach deeper understandings of one another in order to survive. Theory of Bastards won a Philip K Dick Award. [JC]
