Description - Animals by Emma Adams

'I want shocks! I've heard they are fun and a lot of blood rushes to your head.'

77-year-old Norma is having a tricky day. She can't finish the crossword and Joy keeps stealing her recliner. Not to mention Helen next door has twisted her ankle falling from a weather balloon, they've run out of Class A drugs and the Utility Inspector just popped round to see if it's time for her involuntary euthanasia... Animals is a wicked satire set in a world where everyone over 60 is tossed on the scrapheap, children are hothoused, and being a 'burden on society' is the ultimate crime.
