SHORTLISTED FOR THE JHALAK PRIZE 2024 Shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize 2023 for Nature Writing 'Exquisite, luminous and quietly radical . . . utterly unique and refreshing' Lucy Jones Where nothing grows, moss is the spark that triggers new life. Embarking on a journey though landscape, memory and recovery, Elizabeth-Jane Burnett explores this mysterious, ancient marvel of the plant world, meditating on and renaming her favourite mosses – from Glowflake to Little Loss – and drawing inspiration from place, people and language itself. 'Fascinating, subtle and risk-taking . . . Poetry, descriptive-evocative prose, memory, memoir, natural history and more all drift and mingle in strikingly new ways' Robert Macfarlane
