Mabey’s memoir on his recovery from crippling depression through a rediscovery of his love for nature is quite remarkable both for its honesty and its total lack of ego. He has much to say on Man’s relationship with nature and the prose is both warm and fiercely intelligent.’ The Judges, Whitbread Book Awards, 2005. To celebrate Richard Mabey’s 80th birthday and to tie in with a new broadcast of the book as Radio 4 Book of the Week from 5th July 2021 read by the author, Little Toller is delighted to announce the first of several collectable hardback editions of the writer’s books, the seminal Nature Cure, originally published in 2005 to great acclaim. At the height of his career, having recently published Flora Britannica, the author and naturalist fell in to a deep and all consuming depression. Unable to rise from his bed, his face turned to the wall, Richard Mabey found that the touchstones of his life – his love for nature and the land – could no longer offer him solace. But over time, with help from friends and a move to East Anglia, he slowly recovered, finding a new partner, and a new relationship with landscape. Nature Cure, full of nuance and energy, was a pioneering book in the genre that has since become known as New Nature Writing, and received many plaudits on publication. New foreword by the author. Jacket by Michael Kirkman. Published 5th July 2021.
