Gifts of Gravity and Light is a book of nature writing unlike any other. A range of contributors from diverse backgrounds write of their encounters with the natural world in Britain over the course of one year. Foreword by Bernadine Evaristo.
Gifts of Gravity and Light is a new collection of nature writing that shines a light on the natural world in all its biodiversity as experienced by those who, for reasons of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, class, upbringing or disability, are not often seen or heard when it comes to nature writing. With a foreword by Bernadine Evaristo, and contributions from Kaliane Bradley, Pippa Marland, Testament, Michael Malay, Tishani Doshi, Jay Griffiths, Luke Turner, Anita Roy, Raine Geoghegan, Zakiya Mckenzie, Alys Fowler and Amanda Thomson - these are the voices of those whose perspective is not necessarily that of a 'insider'.
Telling in the story of the year in four broad sections - Winter, Spring , Summer, Autumn - this is an almanac that will entertain, surprise and enthral everyone for whom nature is as important as breathing.
