Synopses & Reviews
Country Life: how it is lived, how it has changed, and how the changes are far from over. An issue that ranges from English fox-hunters to the rice-planters of the Ganges delta.
Tim Adams goes on a fox hunt, Craig Taylor returns to Akenfield thirty-five years after Ronald Blythe's landmark book, Jeff Sharlet finds out what's eating rural Coloradans. Plus Margaret Atwood, James Hamilton-Paterson, Barry Lopez, Orhan Pamuk and Tim Winton on the weather. And Matthew Reisz on his grandmother's affair with Havelock Ellis, the grandfather of sexual studies.
The secret enthusiasms that sustain us—butterfly hunting, bicycling, bird watching, absurd days with a golf club or a fishing rod: what writers do or dream of when they're not writing— are explored here. Features include Jim Lewis on the fine art of sleeping, the late Marshall Frady on his uncle's harmonica, Lemony Snicket on playing with toy soldiers, and more.
