Product description

Review

Prose essays of a sharpness of looking, and directness of thought, that will make them last a long time; some of the best writing out of rural Scotland for many decades. Jamie observes the extraordinary, alien natural world around her with a frank uncluttered candour, while nevertheless standing rooted in the middle of modern family life. (Andrew Marr)

Kathleen Jamie is a supreme listener. Her attention - to the beckoning calls of the peregrines that nest near her house, to the brimful darkness in the neolithic chambers at Maes Howe, to the mute appeals of embryo skeletons in a medical museum - has a directness that borders on the heroic. And in the quietness of her listening, you hear her own voice: clear, subtle, respectful, and so unquenchably curious that it makes the world anew. This is as close as writing gets to a conversation with the natural world. (Richard Mabey)

From the moment you meet Kathleen Jamie's words, you meet a passion for the environment, not as an abstract quality but as what surrounds her...the small birds in the garden, the landscapes of her native Scotland, even ordinary familiar domestic cares are illuminated with curiosity, affection, knowledge and a deep concern. (Rosalind Coward, writer and journalist)

About the Author

Winner of the prestigious Forward Prize 2004, Kathleen Jamie is considered one of Britain’s most important poets. Her first travel book, Among Muslims, was described by The Independent as “utterly luminous” and by the Times Literary Supplement as “one of the most powerful accounts by a contemporary western writer”. She often writes for BBC Radio 3 and the London Review of Books, and is a lecturer in Creative Writing at St Andrews University. Kathleen Jamie lives in Fife with her husband and two young children.
