Fiction can be a unique catalyst for change. As Richard Powers writes in The Overstory, "The best arguments in the world won’t change a person’s mind. The only thing that can do that is a good story."
Here are eight novels to change the way we think about – and act upon – the most urgent story of our times: the climate crisis. These wild, surprising and essential reads have been brought together in the beautifully designed Vintage Earth collection, a series of outstanding writing on the power and beauty of nature.
