Chaired by Andrew McNeillie.
How can one account for the surge of interest in natural history? Mark Cocker’s Crow Country and Polly Devlin’s A Year in the Life of an English Meadow were both instant successes. Crow Country is a paean to Cocker’s corvine obsession; Polly Devlin’s book is a tribute to an almost lost way of life. They discuss their passions with Andrew McNeillie, poet and editor of Archipelago, a journal dedicated to the British landscape. Mark Cocker is one of our foremost writers on nature. Polly Devlin is a well-known author and broadcaster. Andrew McNeillie co-edited Virginia Woolf’s Diaries." (christiguc)
