EEHN member Hetty Saunders has written an remarkable biography–the first ever–of J.A. Baker, author of the exceptional The Peregrine. Wernor Herzog tells students of his Rogue Film School it is an “absolute must-read piece of literature”, while Robert Macfarlane hails it as “a masterpiece of the literature of place.” Hetty’s book is the first to shine light on the mysteries of who Baker was and what shaped his extraordinary book.
My House of Sky: the life of J.A. Baker will be published by Little Toller, with a foreword by Robert Macfarlane and unpublished poems by Baker. You can find out more about My House of Sky, and the crowdfunder appeal here.
