'A simply wonderful book...the perfect union of writer and subject...a delightfully eccentric masterpiece; no poolside or riverbank should be without it' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
Roger Deakin, who died in 2006, was a writer, filmmaker and environmentalist of international renown. He was a founder member of Friends of the Earth, and co-founded Common Ground. He lived for thirty-eight years in a moated farmhouse in Suffolk. Waterlog, which was first published in 1999, became a word-of-mouth bestseller, and is now an established classic of the nature writing canon.
I jumped in with both feet and wanted to stay for more.
Erudite, funky and passionate, a total delight
*Independent on Sunday*
Charmingly and elegantly written
A delicious, cleansing, funny, wise and joyful book, so wonderfully full of energy and life. I loved it
Highly entertaining...Waterlog is a book about a cold, wet subject written with a warmth and passion it surely deserves, but has rarely had before
