William Henry Searle is a poet and writer whose work draws on personal experience, seeking to interweave the natural world with the human. In Threads, he weaves together personal stories and deals with the meanings of intimacy, vulnerability and our affinities with people and places, both wild and tame. It is a deep exploration of the encounters that lend quiet networks of grace to our busy lives.

Author of the acclaimed Lungs of My Earth, he casts an eye back to episodes spent in close and tender relationships with members of his family, childhood friends, animals and loved ones, and celebrates the quiet conversations that nourish us, and the everyday patterns of connection that give meaning to our human existence.

‘An exceptionally rich celebration of the natural world, by turns rapturous and melancholy, and often – in strikingly original ways – both at the same time.’
Sir Andrew Motion
