Chris Flynn – Mammoth

Posted on: Wed 29 Apr 2020

Mammoth is a new novel from Chris Flynn which is already gaining praise from Australia’s favourite authors.

Narrated by a 13,000-year-old extinct American mastodon, Mammoth is the (mostly) true story of how the skull of a Tyrannosaurus bataar, a pterodactyl, a prehistoric penguin, the severed hand of an Egyptian mummy and the narrator himself came to be on sale at a 2007 natural history auction in Manhattan.

Chris chat’s with Breakfast’s Zoe Kounadis & Tom Mann about the fear he felt heading into the project, explaining the concept and how researching stories of cataclysmic change has brought some comfort in these uncertain times.
