Kathleen Jamie is one of the UK’s foremost poets, the award-winning author of several books of poetry, including The Overhaul, which won the Costa Book Award for Poetry (previously called the Whitbread) in 2013, and two previous nonfiction titles.

Her latest book Sightlines offers a landmark work about the natural world and our relationship to it. In extraordinarily precise language Jamie explores her native Scottish surroundings, intermingling personal history with observations of the landscape. Her travels lead her to studying whalebones in Norwegian museums, exploring remote Scottish islands, and watching icebergs in the Arctic. Sightlines invites us to take a moment to pause and reconsider all that nature gives us.
