About this book

Weaving together personal stories, Threads deals with the meanings of intimacy, vulnerability and our affinities with people and places, both wild and tame. It is a deep exploration of the encounters that lend quiet networks of grace to our busy lives.

William Henry Searle casts an eye back to episodes spent in close and tender relationships with members of his family, childhood friends, animals and loved ones, in places that range from his father's scrap metal yards, to the jungles of Borneo, an Oregon river and the Swiss Alps.

In thoughtful, elegant prose, Searle celebrates the quiet conversations that nourish us, and the everyday patterns of connection that give meaning to our human existence.

Media reviews

"Touching and on occasion profoundly moving [...] The connections and affinities that fill this book enliven, enlighten and delight."
– Stephen Fry

"An exceptionally rich celebration of the natural world, by turns rapturous and melancholy, and often – in strikingly original ways – both at the same time."
– Sir Andrew Motion
