Uprooted – Out Today!
March 3, 2016 | by Faber Social
We’re extremely proud to today publish Uprooted: On The Trail of the Green Man by Nina Lyon.
The book has been receiving incredible reviews…
‘Riotously fecund…Uprooted is less a work of cultural history or countryside writing than a pantheist call to arms.’ — The Guardian
‘This quirky but engaging book describes Lyon’s quest to track down as many examples of [The Green Man] as she can…Ultimately the book is less about the Green Man and more about the author’s search for meaning in her life. It could have become unbearably self-indulgent, but Lyon is a witty and insightful writer and her account is filled with self-deprecating charm’ — The Sunday Times
‘Nina Lyon’s new book on the “Green Man”, which, it turns out, is not really about the Green Man at all, but something bigger. It is an unusual, digressive and timely piece of writing that pulls on many threads.. But just as the meaning of the Green Man hides behind the foliage that sprouts from his mouth and eye sockets, it turns out that the true purpose of Uprooted us also hiding in the undergrowth, waiting to be discovered. — The New Statesman, Paul Kingsnorth
Nina will be reading from Uprooted next week at our Language of Place event at St. John on Bethnal Green church with Will Self, Iain Sinclair and the Memory Band. Details here.
