An Elon Musk-style billionaire persuades scientist Kate Larkin to join his secretive new project. Its ambitious aim is to re-engineer our collapsing climate by resurrecting long extinct species, including our closest human relatives, the Neanderthals. James Bradley’s Ghost Species is both a compulsive page-turner and book of big ideas: a deft examination of scientific, corporate and personal ethics in our endangered world and an intimate and affecting account of love, motherhood and what it means to be human.

In conversation with James Bradley about David Mitchell's 'Utopia Avenue'
The ABR Podcast
In today's episode, author and critic James Bradley speaks to ABR's digital editor Jack Callil about David Mitchell's latest novel, Utopia Avenue. Mitchell is perhaps best known for Cloud Atlas (2004), a work of sprawling interconnected narratives. In a similar vein, Utopia Avenue traces the lives of four band members during their rise to fame during the bustle of the 1960s. Yet as James Bradley details, the book is less concerned with history or music than with its own 'metaphysical game'. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Take Home Reading is a new short-form audio series for readers and writers – shining a spotlight on Australian writers with recently released books. In each instalment, you’ll be introduced to a writer, learn a little about what they’ve been reading lately, and hear a short reading from their latest work. In this episode we’re talking to James Bradley about his novel Ghost Species, an exquisitely drawn and deeply affecting exploration of connection and loss in an age of climate catastrophe.‘It seems to me that the single most defining thing we face as a species is this kind of environmental transformation we're in the middle of, and we just don't talk about it. You know, Amitav Ghosh talks about the great derangement, that kind of complete erasure of this incredibly important thing from our cultural and political lives. And although there is a lot more fiction in this space [recently] ... I find myself wondering: why isn't all fiction about this?’Ghost Species is out now through Hamish Hamilton.
It's a short show tonight as my band is getting together for our first in-person meeting since before the CLOVID crisis. With the limited time we have tonight there shall be a quaint little interview with a man who is running against Ted Lieu, California, and his name is James Bradley. After we spend a little time with James, the massive explosion in Lebanon will be on the table - media said 'FIREWORKS' at first, and now it's looking to be something much bigger. Questions, and open calls will drive us past the finish line.Proudly Sponsored by Kheyleve: All-American, All-Natural Skincare Products.
