The Uses of Slime Mould: Essays of Four Decades (British Literature) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Including pieces on Gregory Bateson, William Faulkner, Philip Pullman, Sir Oswald Mosley's politics, religion, and stammering, this diverse collection gathers essays written by Nicholas Mosley over the past forty years. Resembling the behavior of slime mould--a strange organism made up of separate amoebae that come together to form a single pillar that survives for a short time before bursting in order to scatter its seeds across the forest floor--the ideas found in these essays converge and disperse, crossing over into other disciplines and creating a unique way of looking at the world, one echoed in Mosley's fictional writings.
