Description

A New York Times Bestseller ‘Within two pages, nature writing feels different and fresh and new …

This book demands we find the eyes to see and the heart to love such things once more.

It is a very fine book indeed, truly full of wonder’ – James Rebanks, author of Pastoral Song’An unusual and captivating memoir … a thing of wonder, the book that most took me by surprise this year’ – Jini Reddy, author of WanderlandWhat the peacock can do is remind you of a home you will run away from and run back to all your life.

The axolotl teaches us to smile, even in the face of unkindness; the touch-me-not plant shows us how to shake off unwanted advances; the narwhal demonstrates how to survive in hostile environments. In her nonfiction debut, award-winning poet Aimee Nezhukumatathil explores the many places she has called home, from inhospitable plains to tall mountains in big sky country.

No matter where she is transplanted, Nezhukumatathil finds beauty and kinship, even in the strange and the unlovely.

For it is this way with wonder: it requires that we are curious enough to look past the distractions in order to fully appreciate the world’s gifts. Featuring exquisite colour illustrations by Fumi Nakamura throughout, World of Wonders is a magnificent bestiary: an unforgettable book of sustenance, resilience and joy.
