‘Radical and earthy; superlative and sensible … bright accomplished stuff.’

Patrick Laurie, author of Native: Life in a Vanishing Landscape

‘A beautifully written, wonderfully tender – and ultimately hopeful – journey through all that we stand to lose on this ever-more-challenged Earth.’

SHARON BLACKIE, author of If Women Rose Rooted

‘A moving meditation on loss and fragility, tenderly tracing a love of wild creatures across landscapes of damaged yet deeply felt meaning. Startling and generous beauty, Two Lights finds light in the wondrous presence of others and the interconnectedness of all living things.’

Julian Hoffman, author of Irreplaceable: The Fight to Save Our Wild Places

‘A book about what it means to be fully alive in a time of endings: personal, planetary. Deeply moving and rich in surprising perspectives on wild places and our relationship to them.’

Tanya Shadrick, author of The Cure for Sleep

 

‘Deeply personal yet always outward looking, James Roberts delights in the world he discovers about him. Yet he also trembles, because he understands like winter light, that world is diminished … and diminishing … Two Lights reveals why all of us should be writers.’

ROBERT MINHINNICK, POET AND AUTHOR OF DIARY OF THE LAST MAN
