New from the author of The Times nature book of the year 2019.
The Easternmost Sky describes country life and living with coastal erosion, in the recent past, the present and the relatable future. By exploring how climate and social changes are affecting coastal Suffolk, and zooming out from the local to offer a more global perspective, Juliet Blaxland forecasts with wit and imagination the future we will all have to adapt to, in Britain and across the world.
Juliet Blaxland is an architect, author, cartoonist and illustrator. She is the author and illustrator of twelve children's books and a prize-winning photographer. She grew up in a remote part of Suffolk and following the planned demolition of the house described in her first book, The Easternmost House (2019) now lives a little further away from the edge of the cliff at the easternmost edge of England. The Easternmost House was shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize and the East Anglian Book Award, and was The Times Nature Book of the Year, 2019.
"Engaging [...] Blaxland is an acute observer, steeped in the ways of the countryside, its communities, and its traditions."
