Nothing Really Disappears

A turbulent story about animal-industrial complex, idealism, and companionship that transcends the boundaries between species.

A professional activist approaching middle age realizes that she has lost her faith in life. For years she has been sneaking around in cowsheds, stared at horrible video materials and been patiently enlightening people. Still, even now someone asks whether she has thought about what the carrots feel. The animal-industrial complex continues to increase its output and it doesn’t matter that fashion houses are refusing fur clothing and people are pouring oat milk into their coffee. Faced with an overwhelming opponent, she must choose whether to continue fighting or whether it’s best to run away.

NOTHING REALLY DISAPPEARS is Laura Gustafsson’s sixth novel.
