Autumn: An Anthology for the Changing Seasons by Melissa Harrison

By Melissa Harrison

Autumn is a time of transformation. Crisp, transparent days mark summer’s shut and herald a brand new season with its wealthy scents and shiny palette, leaves flaming purple and gold via day, bonfires and fireworks lighting fixtures up the lengthening nights. there's abundance, as people and animals make shops for the wintry weather; and there's decay, which supplies upward thrust to the subsequent cycle of life.

In prose and poetry from around the British Isles, Autumn captures either the pleasure and the depression of this turning element within the 12 months. that includes unique writing via Horatio Clare, John Lewis-Stempel and Amy Liptrot, vintage extracts from the paintings of Ted Hughes, Helen Macdonald and Nan Shepherd, and a wealth of clean new voices, Autumn is an evocative get together of the year’s decline – and new beginnings.
