OWLS Author Miriam Darlington’s new book, Owl Sense

Press Release OWL SENSE Miriam Darlington 8 February 2018, £15.99 hardback / £10.99 e-book ‘A beautiful book; wise and sharp-eared as its subject.’ Robert MacFarlane Owls have captivated the human imagination for millennia. We have fixated on this night hunter as predator, messenger, emblem of wisdom or portent of doom. In Owl Sense, Miriam Darlington sets out to tell a new story. Her fieldwork begins with wild encounters in the British Isles, on the owl walks she takes with her teenage son Benji. From here, Darlington seeks to identify every European species of this charismatic and elusive bird, on a journey that will take her from southern Spain through France, Serbia and Finland, and to the frosted borders of the Arctic. Along the way, however, Benji succumbs to a mysterious and disabling illness, and her owl quest soon becomes entangled with the search for his cure. Owl Sense is a book about the wild places in nature and in the unpredictable course of our human lives. In her watching and deep listening to owls in the natural world, Darlington cleaves myth from reality and brings the strangeness and magnificence of these creatures to life. ‘Otter Country is proper nature writing, revealing as much about the writer’s obsession with otters as of the animal itself and leaving us in awe of both.’ Sir John Lister-Kaye Miriam Darlington was born in Lewes, Sussex, and now lives in Totnes with her two dogs, one cat, two children, and one husband. She has tracked and studied wildlife for most of her life and is an avid bird-watcher, expert owl-finder, and top otter-spotter. She has a degree in Modern Languages, a PhD in Nature Writing, a certificate in Field Ecology and is a Nature Notebook columnist at The Times. Her first book, Otter Country, was published in 2012. She currently teaches Creative Writing at Plymouth University and spends the rest of her time writing and researching about wildlife and the people in its grasp.

Natural, cultural and personal insights spark off each other.’ Tristan Gooley ‘Miriam Darlington’s quest to better know of these enigmatic, beautiful and fascinating birds is a delight to read. In these times of heightened opportunity and threat, her vision, sensitivity and word craft are vital.’ Caspar Henderson Faber & Faber Ltd, Bloomsbury House, 74-77 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3DA T : 020 7927 3800 F : 020 7927 3801 Registered Number : 944703 @FaberBooks 29
