This book was a joy to read. Wonderfully weird, dark, and redemptive, this short novel is a fascinating meditation on art, creation, and fatherhood with illustrations by the author. I was immediately enthralled. Who knew a retelling of Pinnochio could feel so timely.

This book is awesome, absolutely packed with fascinating ideas. Merlin Sheldrake's voice is clear and relatable, brimming with contagious passion. I will never look at lichen the same way. I found myself sharing fungus factoids with anyone who would listen while I was reading this. You will love it if you enjoyed Wohlleben's Hidden Life of Trees.

Published: Penguin Books - June 25th, 2019

This book blew my mind. An existential fable for the millenial generation, it follows a privileged, fashionable young woman living in Brooklyn as she strategizes her hibernation. Full of complex repressed emotion and a cast of misguided characters with terrible advice. It's cringey, dark, hilarious, and so refreshingly human!
