'Although there is much in this world that is incomprehensible, you can nevertheless discover a meaning as long as you have managed to limit your field of search.' Fredrik Sjoberg - collector, romantic, explorer - spends his life tracing the smallest details of the natural world. In these two beautifully wrought tales he meditates on the joy of little things, childhood memories, long-forgotten Swedish entomologists, earthworms, wine-making, the National Parks of the United States, the richness of life and the strange paths it leads us on. 'Digressive, discursive and delightful' Daily Telegraph 'A joy ...Fredrik Sjoberg's best-selling memoir The Fly Trap marked him as a maestro of the episodic. Here, he completes a trilogy' Nature 'Thoroughly entertaining, beguilingly uncategorizable ...By his own admission Sjoberg has a "butterfly mind" ...What insures this approach against triviality is the author's patient alertness to pattern, to telling correspondence' Nat Segnit, The Times Literary Supplement
