Two birdy books that herald spring, the return of swifts from Africa and the promise of soft summer days to come. In the window of Little Toller’s new bookshop in Beaminster, Dorset we spotted: The Screaming Sky by Charles Foster, the latest in Little Toller’s monograph series, in which Foster follows swifts around the world, manically, lyrically and always scientifically. Swifts live in perpetual summer and sleep in the high thin air, their wings controlled by an alert half brain. And with it another book represented by Jessica Woollard:  The Circling Sky by Neil Ansell which has a great promotional partnership with GO JAUNTLY, a walking, wayfinding and nature connection app, so that you can win a year’s worth of premium membership here.

Nomadland which won an impressive four BAFTAs for picture, director, best actress and cinematography, inspired by Jessica Bruder’s book of the same title.

Rosanna Amaka, Kei Miller, Leone Ross, Symeon Brown, and Raymond Antrobus in The Bookseller’s The Black Issue Black Authors’ Preview.

And associate agent Elise Dillsworth in the same issue.
