MODERN ANIMAL knots together humans and animals, retelling interviews, folktales, memories, and visions of the people--bourgeois, urban, rural, Roma, working class--encountered on a multiyear journey through Ukraine. The result is a revolutionary approach to anthropology, what it means to become and behave like something else. Without judgement or simplification, Belorusets provides intimate revelations of human-animal relationships: how we shape each other, use each other, and, at times, cross the lines that distinguish us from one another. In conversation, she finds the lost and forgotten remains of something pagan, but still irrepressibly modern.
