I just learned that The Forest Unseen is now in its second printing, which is great news. I know that the enthusiasm of many of the followers of this blog is part of the reason for this success: thank you. A paperback version will be coming out in spring of 2013.
Some recent reviews include one in the NRDC’s magazine, OnEarth, and inclusion in John Sutherland’s essay about the direction of modern “nature writing” in the Financial Times. I was particularly honored to be included in this essay alongside authors whose work I greatly admire.
I am in Santa Cruz, CA, today giving a talk at UCSC. Banana slugs are underfoot, ravens overhead, and redwoods surround buildings on campus. What passes for rain in these parts is falling outside, what Tennesseans might call a vigorous, organized mist; apparently this may be the only precipitation until the autumn.
