Katherine Rundell & Alice Spawls: The Golden Mole

Writer and academic Katherine Rundell’s much-loved ‘Consider the…’ LRB series has been fleshed out into an illustrated bestiary of astounding animals. The Golden Mole (Faber) explores the strange, secret lives of moles, swifts, giraffes, pangolins and many more, inviting readers to reckon with the beauty and fragility of the natural world.

Rundell was in conversation with Alice Spawls, editor of the LRB.
