Cal Flyn, Matthew Green & Judith Schalansky: Abandoning All but Hope

In an era of climate catastrophe, the urge to hold back the sands of time appears futile. Three lyrical books powerfully underline human transience: Cal Flyn’s Islands of Abandonment explores strange lands surrendered by humans; Judith Schalansky’s An Inventory of Losses is a playful romp through an array of lost artefacts; and Matthew Green’s Shadowlands is a poignant exploration of Britain’s ghost places. They discuss their discoveries with Dan Richards.
