Reviews

  • "A rich, strange, oddly glorious brew . . . Cox's writing is loose-limbed, engaging and extremely funny, and time spent in his company is time very pleasantly spent."

    Guardian
  • "Like a British David Sedaris dedicated to a rural way of life, Tom Cox crafts funny and poignant stories out of observations and interactions – except his observations are of trees and his interactions are with squirrels."

    AV Club
  • "A hybrid of nature writing, memoir, and social history, it rambles, leisurely, through the English countryside, often pausing to ponder the relationship between people and place"
