We’re excited to announce Neil Sentance’s debut book Water and Sky is hot off the press and on its way to us…

Our first joint venture with the wonderful Little Toller, it’s published May 1st and you can pre-order it from the Caught by the River shop here. There are still a few signed copies left, with all pre-orders being shipped within the next few weeks.

A celebration of Neil’s native Lincolnshire countryside and the genealogy which shaped it, Water and Sky collects together ‘Scenes from the Waterside’, a sequence of essays which first appeared on the Caught by the River website between 2010 and 2013. Read them here 

As Robert Macfarlane says of the book; “a marvellous and haunting sequence . . . It is wonderful to read such experiment of voice, tone and vision.”

The beautiful dust jacket you see above was illustrated by Jonathan Gibbs and the book also features a great foreword by Richard Benson (who’s latest book, The Valley: A Century in the Life of a Family will be published by Bloomsbury next month).
