Description


* Chicago Tribune "Fall literary preview: books you need to read now"
* Vulture "The Best and Biggest Books to Read This Fall"

NORTH AMERICAN EDITION: After moving with his wife and two children to a smallholding in Ireland, Paul Kingsnorth expects to find contentment. It is the goal he has sought -- to nest, to find home -- after years of rootlessness as an environmental activist and author. Instead he finds that his tools as a writer are failing him, calling into question his foundational beliefs about language and setting him at odds with culture itself.

Informed by his experiences with indigenous peoples, the writings of D.H. Lawrence and Annie Dillard, and the day-to-day travails of farming his own land, Savage Gods asks: what does it mean to belong? What sacrifices must be made in order to truly inhabit a life? And can words ever paint the truth of the world -- or are they part of the great lie which is killing it?
