Book Of The Week

The Golden Mole
Katherine Rundell | Faber | 2022

Recommended by Maria Golia at the Times Literary Supplement
"These lovingly crafted portraits of mostly endangered animals, scattered with historical anecdotes, personal observations and literary references, are surprising and delightful. In describing how “we have collided with living things, in both joy and destruction”, Rundell has written both a cultural history of humans’ rapport with their fellow animals and a reminder of how little we know of them"
