journalism

I write regularly for The Guardian, The New Statesman and the The Spectator. Since 1987 I have contributed to the Guardian Country Diary – an article every other Tuesday (now c840 pieces). For my Guardian profile and latest articles click here.

I also review for The Spectator and my latest is of three big art shows on trees, fungi and insects. These are at the Hayward Gallery and Somerset House in London and at the GroundWork Gallery in King’s Lynn. All are probably now closed because nature has struck in mysterious ways, so all the more reason to read about what you missed. See here.

I also recently reviewed James Crowden’s extraordinary travel book Frozen River in The Spectator. James self-isolated for six months in the Zanksar Valley. What could be more topical? See here. My latest in the New Statesman is about Michael Bond’s superb book Wayfinding on our ancient capacity for orientation …. and the modern human penchant for getting lost.
