The Ants reviewed at Pank

The AntsAt Pank, Emily-Jo Hopson discusses Sawako Nakayasu’s The Ants, drawing the reader’s attention to the workings and re-workings of horror and whimsy in Nakayasu’s text:

In a book about ants, it would be all too easy to lean on horror, to dwell in the entropy that the underlife of insect-kind so often represents. Sawako Nakayasu chooses instead to mess with, subvert and laugh at these tropes; to make small (how do I cross the road?) big, and big (I am a walking ant farm) small: Very cool.
