This is just the kind of science writing I enjoy the most - half portraits of the animals and systems, and half portraits of the author and their world. Imbler's writing is clear and rich in metaphor while still scientifically sound, and their explanations of the animals they're interested in are just as compelling as the human communities, conflicts, and loves with which they are in conversation. When Imbler writes about the queer communities they've found, their writing just soars with love. Made me cry on the train a little, I must admit!!
