Twenty-First Century Yokel

by Tom Cox

In an age when everything has a label, here is a book from the ever-original Tom Cox that defies categorization. It’s part memoir, part nature writing, part folklore, part history, part philosophy, part thinking out loud – all done with intelligence and humour. There are pieces about insects; about Cox’s nan; about scarecrows; about the sea; about his parents; even about his cats. The anecdotes and ruminations – sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, sometimes thought-provoking - weave in and out, creating intricate patterns and creating a book that is so much more than the sum of its parts. A constant delight. A much needed relief from our chaotic times.
