Keggie Carew, an artist by profession, won the Costa biography prize in 2016 for her first book,   Dadland: A Journey Into Uncharted Territory, the extraordinary life story of her father as an unlikely second world war hero. It became a bestseller.

Her next book, Quicksand Tales, a collection of eccentric autobiographical anecdotes and essays, also won enthusiastic reviews. Her latest explores very different territory: the story of how, over the millennia, animals have shaped human life and civilisation. Beastly considers our relationship with the world’s creatures and how they could, if given the chance, help to save us from ourselves.
