Summary
"Loosely based on the medieval bestiary, The Rapture Index examines the relationship between animals, humans, and storytelling. Harnessing the bestiary's combination of religious parable, encyclopedia, and art, Molly Reid journeys deep into suburbia to reveal characters struggling to navigate desire and responsibility: the desire to indulge their baser instincts while still fulfilling the expectations of society and family. Filled with moments of curiosity, misunderstanding, fervor, and heart, these stories offer a new twist on familiar landscapes as they explore what happens in the places where the wilderness has been tamed when we try to deny our own animal nature"--
