I write regularly for a range of publications, including The Guardian, The New Statesman, The Observer and The Spectator.
My contributions to July's BBC Radio 4 Natural Histories programme on the Blackbird. Click here.
In June I reviewed Richard Prum's hugely provocative account of a lifetime's work The Evolution of Beauty for the New Statesman.
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
