“The piercing east wind scattered the dust in clouds, looking at a distance like small rain across the field…”
– Nature Near London, Richard Jeffries
Small Rain is a new side project I’m working on, in which I am attempting to chart the history of urban nature writing. I’ll be reading my way through the canon and reviewing the books I read as I go along.
You can see my timeline of urban nature writing here – please add any suggestions or books I’ve missed in the comments section!
You can read the book reviews here.
