Product description

Review

"This book is a delight: witty and wryly contrarian" (Robert MacFarlane Guardian)

"A masterpiece of its kind... Even more uplifting is the chapter on weather - truly one of the most extraordinary passages of prose I have read in some time... This is, quite simply, beautiful, but it is also typical of a beautifully conceived work of exploration, by two emissaries to the wilderness who do the wasteland proud" (John Burnside The Times)

"Marvellously quirky, fascinatingly detailed and beautifully written" (Daily Telegraph)

"The edgelands, where the veneer of civilisation peels away, are the most despised and ignored of landscapes. Ambition turns to dust in the sewage farm and landfill site. But Farley and Roberts's mischievous and elegant forays into these marginal wastes, show that dust turns back to life in them - into riotous ecologies, agitprop architecture and the wonderful business of playing. A provocative, left-field read" (Richard Mabey)

"Haunting, often inspiring book...Edgelands covers an impressive range of politics, reminiscence, investigation and rumination" (Scotland on Sunday)

Book Description

Shortlisted for the 2012 Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize and winner of the Foyles Best Book of Ideas Prize - this is a book about the blank spaces on the A-Z: the lost and unloved 'edgelands' between cities and countryside
