The Moth Box

Paperback
Landscape and nature take centre stage in this practised collection. Here we have a bird's - or perhaps moth's - eye view of the natural world and the ways in which we interact (and often fail to interact) with it. The Moth Box also interrogates our various environments: ecological, linguistic, national - even astrological and philosophical. Camouflage, too, plays a role; certainly with creatures such as the eponymous moth, but also the disguises in which we cloak ourselves. This is a collection teeming with life, but for all the cats, moths, birds, trees, The Moth Box never forgets what it is to be human.
