Remarkable Creatures, By Tracy Chevalier, HarperCollins, €19.20

Tracy Chevalier’s Remarkable Creatures is based on the life of Mary Anning, a young woman whose 19th century palaeontological discoveries were to become key pieces of evidence for the process of extinction.

It is a rich and dangerous subject for the author, as some of the details of Anning’s life are so remarkable that, were they not true, might otherwise stretch credulity.
