I’m so happy to announce that the paperback version of Crow Planet is hot off the presses. You can order one already from the usual online venues, and it will be in your local shop by April 21st, the official release date.
In addition to affordability, the paperback is loaded with extras: a conversational interview with the author, a quirky new suggested reading list, and a reader’s guide for book groups. My favorite thing about it? The great quote from David Sedaris (love him!) on the cover. Now if I could just hear him sing those lines in his Billie Holiday voice, my life would be complete…
Crow Planet uses the biology, natural history, mythology, and urban ubiquity of crows to explore the human relationship with nature more broadly–finding delight, even in a time of ecological crisis. It was named a Best Book of the Year by the LA Times and Seattle Times, and won the lovely Sigurd Olson Nature Writing Award. I hope you’ll take the opportunity offered by the new “nice-priced” Crow Planet to read it if you haven’t yet, or share it as a gift with friends and loved ones.
In celebration of the new release (and in appreciation of the wonderful Tangled Nest readers!) I will be giving away a signed copy of Crow Planet to one happy winner, chosen at random, from everyone who comments on this post or anywhere on The Tangled Nest between now and the official release date, April 21. Many thanks for all your support!
