A Natural History of Transition, the debut story collection from Callum Angus, disrupts the singular, medicalized notions of transition to expose instead the multitudes of transformation, detailing their magical delights, and unwelcome horrors. -Madeleine Moss, Chicago Review of Books
Angus shows mastery of both compressed and expansive forms--we have the exciting opportunity to glimpse here a young writer exploring different modalities of structure and tone (lyrical, experimental, referential, mythic) with almost universally compelling results. -Giancarlo Latta, Gertrude Press
A Natural History of Transition is overall a beautiful and mystifying collection of stories that arrives at a time when it's much needed. -Nour Abi-Nakhoul, Montreal Review of Books
This collection of stories deftly captures the sometimes frightening, often beautiful, and frequently magical leap into the unknown that is transition. Angus's writing asks you hold on, firm but gentle, and trust the journey. -jiaqing wilson-yang, author of Small Beauty
Reading this slim yet expansive collection is a joyride for the brain, even when it reckons with deep-rooted pain and grief. -Sarah Neilson, The Seventh Wave
