Gentle, subtle, absorbing ... the most complex and supple account of that much-discussed idea, "modern rural life", that I have ever read
Robert Macfarlane, author of MOUNTAINS OF THE MIND and THE WILD PLACES
From the Same Author
Here are the voices of London – rich and poor, native and immigrant, women and men – witnessed by Craig Taylor, an acclaimed journalist, playwright and writer, who spent five years exploring the city and listening to its residents. From the woman whose voice announces the stations on the London Underground to the man who plants the trees along Oxford Street; from a Pakistani currency trader to a Guardsman at Buckingham Palace – together, these voices and many more, paint a vivid, epic and wholly fresh portrait of Twenty-First Century London.
