You will find in my online store (and on displays in my physical store) curations by writers for readers, a list of books from the genre they write in – or feel passionately about for other reasons – that they desperately wish to press into readers’ hands.
These are the books that they guard on their bedside table, the books they buy again and again for their friends, the books that they recommend for entry level into a particular genre, or incredible finds for those who are already well-read in that area. I am sure within every curation you will learn something new, but even better than that, those same writers met with me to tell you just why they love the books that they’ve picked.
In the video below you will hear from Marc Hamer who I am reticent to describe as a nature writer and you’ll hear from Marc why in our interview, but that is the genre that his books find a home in. Marc is the author of two books: A Life in Nature, or How to Kill a Mole, Seed to Dust, which was shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize, and forthcoming in February 2023, Spring Rain. In this episode, Marc talks us through the four books that he has picked that use nature as a way of expressing the human condition, or indeed, vice versa. It is a fascinating list made up of essays, poetry and a short story, which has proved a hit in my physical store and makes it almost impossible to choose between them.
Included in Marc’s nature bundle are:
Seed to Dust by Marc Hamer
Blue Horses by Mary Oliver
The Peace of Wild Things by Wendell Berry
Teaching a Stone to Talk by Annie Dillard
The Man Who Planted Trees by Jean Giono
