Description

LONGLISTED FOR THE 2021 WAINWRIGHT PRIZE FOR NATURE WRITING

‘Funny, accessible and full of wonders’ Melissa Harrison, author of The Stubborn Light of Things

Lev Parikian is on a joyful journey to discover the quirks, habits and wonders of how we experience nature.
___
It’s often said that we’re a nation of nature lovers, but what does that really mean?

Lev Parikian sets out to explore the many ways that he, and we, experience the natural world - from pavement to garden and from wildlife reserve to far-flung island.

He visits the haunts of famous nature lovers to examine their insatiable curiosity; meets ramblers, birders and den-builders; and gets up close and personal with the nature he finds everywhere - including the kitchen sink.

Open a window, hear the birds calling and join this warm and generous journey into the tangled bank.
