‘Landfill is an important and entirely brilliant book. It’s a love letter to gulls and their charged relationship with humans, but it’s also a deep meditation on difficulty and waste, on the beauty of the disregarded, and on what we make of matter out of place.’ Helen Macdonald
Tim Dee discusses his recent book Landfill, an exploration of our relationship with rubbish and with nature’s scavengers, in particular, the urban gull. He is joined by composer Matthew Herbert whose sonic response to images of landfill sites, more more more, will be played later in the evening.
Tim Dee has watched birds for almost all his life. He is the author of The Running Sky and Four Fields and the editor of Ground Work and, with Simon Armitage, The Poetry of Birds.
This event is part of Little Toller Books series for Nature Unwrapped.
