Tim Dee – Landfill & Groundwork
Acclaimed author and naturalist Tim presents these two wonderful books which are essential nature writing for our times.
A groundbreaking new book from the author of The Running Sky and Four Fields, Landfill confronts our waste-making species through the extraordinary and fascinating life of gulls, and the people who watch them. Original, compelling and unflinching, it is the nature book for our times. Tim delivers a wonderful, wise meditation on the birds that are often regarded as pests.
In Ground Work, Tim has brought together a wondrous array of writers in this wonderful anthology of nature writing. We are living in the anthropocene – an epoch where everything is being determined by the activities of just one soft-skinned, warm-blooded, short-lived, pedestrian species. How best to make our way through the ruins that we have made?This anthology of commissioned work tries to answer this as it explores new and enduring cultural landscapes, in a celebration of local distinctiveness that includes new work from some of our finest writers.
