by Richard Mabey
A little book about the weather.
Like its predecessor, The Perfumier and the Stinkhorn, this is a very short book based on a series of 15-minute radio programmes. Like its predecessor, you can read this book in a single sitting. In this case, though, the book is about the British obsession with the weather.
As I've said before, I would read Richard Mabey's shopping lists, were he to publish them. He's one of my favourite writers. Once again, the brevity of this book left me hungry for more. But it's a nice read.
