Default Re: The Nature Thread

I'm halfway through the McFarlane - it's mesmerising and integrates so much knowledge about anthropology, psychogeography etc amidst a poetic (but not excessively so) lyricism. Very impressed, though I found it harder to empathise with the "sea-paths" episodes - fascinating to read about them but I don't relate emotionally or personally to these at all.

I'm aiming to read the Deakin (recommended to me some years ago now) and the Armitage fairly soon.

That's fabulous. Never heard of this, w, but thanks, I'll pop it on the list.
