Surfacing: Kathleen Jamie and Philip Hoare

In her latest book Surfacing (Sort of Books), poet and essayist Kathleen Jamie explores what emerges: from the earth, from memory and from the mind. Her travels take her from Arctic Alaska to the sand dunes and machair of Scotland in a quest to discover what archaeology might tell us about the past, the present and the future. Her writing throughout is marked, as always, by an acute attention to the natural world.

She was in conversation about her work with Philip Hoare, author of Leviathan and Risingtidefallingstar.
