Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist


An important and stimulating collection of essays from a radically original writer.  

Geoff Dyer

Quietly revolutionary … To read them is to feel the ground begin to shift slightly under your feet, as the pillars that previously supported your worldview start to crumble and fall away.
The Scotsman

Confessions is a collection of the best of my non-fiction essays from the last seven years. It includes all of the long-form essays I have written for the Dark Mountain series, charting my developing ecological thinking, and many other things too, from publications as varied as newspapers,  websites and the programmes of West End plays. It was published in April 2017 by Faber and Faber.
