Synopsis

To Leave with the Reindeer is the account of a woman who has been trained for a life she cannot live. She readies herself for freedom, and questions its limits, by exploring how humans relate to animals. Rosenthal weaves an intricate pattern, combining the central narrative with many other voices - vets, farmers, breeders, trainers, a butcher - to produce a polyphonic composition full of fascinating and disconcerting insights.Wise, precise, generous, To Leave with the Reindeer takes a clear-eyed look at the dilemmas of domestication, both human and animal, and the price we might pay to break free.

Staff Choice

A young girl seeks independence from her parents, a pitch for freedom that she can't help but frame as a betrayal, and that initially revolves around her longing for a pet and her desire to leave with the reindeer after Christmas. Weaved into this narrative are accounts of animal handlers, of circuses and zoos, of plans to resettle wolves within the midst of a nameless city. Collectively, these threads interrogate the tension between dependence and independence, wildness and domesticity. A weird book about growing up and the desire for liberation.
