On 15 July I reviewed Shark Drunk by the Norwegian author Morten Stroksnes. It is a hauntingly beautiful and captivating account of fishing for a Greenland Shark. In The Spectator.


In November I looked at three very different books that reflect upon our propensity for anthropomorphism, what lies at the root of it and what consequences it has for the way we view the life around us The Spectator.


In January 18 I praised Nate Blakeslee's masterly new book Wolf, in the New Statesman
