    I’m reading Wild Silence at the moment, it’s my readalong with my best friend so a few chapters a week over a few months. It’s good but pretty raw in places and they don’t travel around as much as I thought they did. But it’s fascinating on the writing and reception of The Salt Path. I have English Pastoral, too. Happy reading!

      I have had a copy for ages and just not got to read it yet. I have met her and Moth and one of the Wainwright prizes and she is lovely.
