      Robert Macfarlane in Conversation With Barry Lopez

      Hailed as "the great nature writer of this generation" (Wall Street Journal), Robert Macfarlane is the celebrated author of books about the intersections of the human and the natural realms. In his new work, Underland: A Deep Time Journey (W. W. Norton), Macfarlane delivers his masterpiece: an epic exploration of the Earth’s underworlds as they exist in myth, literature, memory, and the land itself. Macfarlane takes us on an extraordinary journey into our relationship with darkness, burial, and what lies beneath the surface of both place and mind. Global in its geography and written with great lyricism and power, Underland speaks powerfully to our present moment. Taking a deep time view of our planet, Macfarlane here asks a vital and unsettling question: “Are we being good ancestors to the future Earth?” Macfarlane will be joined in conversation by Barry Lopez, author of Horizon.
