Description

SHORTLISTED FOR THE WAINWRIGHT PRIZE FOR NATURE WRITING – HIGHLY COMMENDED’Remarkable’ Robert Macfarlane’Beautiful’ Amy Liptrot’Powerful, unflinching . . . Part hymn to nature, part Troubles memoir’ GuardianKerri ni Dochartaigh was born in Derry at the very height of the Troubles.

One parent was Catholic, the other Protestant. In the space of a year Kerri’s family were forced out of two homes and when she was eleven a homemade petrol bomb was thrown through her bedroom window.

For families like hers, terror was in the very fabric of the city. In Thin Places, Kerri explores how nature kept her sane and helped her heal, and how we are again allowing our borders to become hard and terror to creep back in.

Kerri asks us to reclaim and rejoice in our landscape, and to remember that the land we fight over is much more than lines on a map.
