Just before the festival this year we teamed up with our friends at RMR to record a series of interviews with our festival authors.
This episode welcomes Donna Mazza, author of the incredible Fauna, a book about love, motherhood, corporate commodification and the surveillance state. 
How far would you go to save your daughter?
Set seventeen years into a very recognisable future, Fauna is an astonishing psychological drama with an incredible twist: What if the child you are carrying is not entirely human?
Using DNA technology, scientists have started to reverse the extinction of creatures like the mammoth and the Tasmanian Tiger. The benefits of this radical approach could be far-reaching. But how far will they go?
Donna is joined live on air by interviewer Cate Wosley.
Fauna is published by Allen and Unwin
