A hipsterish artist is challenged by the ghost of Thoreau to make a return to living in harmony with nature. Walden for beginners, basically, and charmingly done. Some good connections are made between the early 19th and 21st centuries, and there’s a tongue-in-cheek approach taken throughout that gently critiques the protagonist.

A history of human interference with the world, from the birds’ perspectives. A smart, clever book with a unique angle, supported by Smyth’s in-depth knowledge, and via his facility for Stuka divebombs of sentences. Lots to think about here. Recommended.

An illustrated series of reflections on Dungeness, birds, punk, and matters desolate. I’m declaring an interest, as the illustrator’s my brother, but the book exists, I’ve read it, I like it, and the pics are great. Not for everyone, inevitably.
