Booksmith presents Robert Macfarlane and Steve Silberman
Robert Macfarlane, who has been called the "greatest nature writer of his generation," makes a rare West coast visit to celebrate the publication of his masterpiece, Underland.

Rob will be joined in conversation by Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity.


*About Underland*

Hailed as "the great nature writer of this generation" (Wall Street Journal), Robert Macfarlane is the celebrated author of prize-winning books about the intersection between the human and the natural world. In Underland, he delivers his masterwork: an epic exploration of Earth's vast subterranean landscape in myth, literature, memory, and the land itself.

Delving into what is known as "deep time," the dizzying expanses of geologic time that stretch away from the present, Macfarlane takes us on an exhilarating journey to Arctic sea caves, Bronze Age burial chambers, the catacombs of Paris, the underground fungal networks through which trees communicate, a dark matter research lab searching for the origins of the universe, and a deep-sunk "hiding place" designed to store nuclear waste for 100,000 years to come.

Global in its geography, contemporary in its concerns, and written with great lyricism and power, Underland uncovers our complex, crucial relationship with the worlds beneath our feet.


* About Robert Macfarlane *

Robert Macfarlane is the author of the prize-winning books Mountains of the Mind, Wild Places, and The Old Ways. He has contributed to "Harper s, Granta, The Observer, The Times Literary Supplement, " and the "London Review of Books." He is a Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge.


* About Steve Silberman *

Steve Silberman is an award-winning science writer and the author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity, which Oliver Sacks called "a sweeping and penetrating history presented with a rare sympathy and sensitivity."

His TED talk, The Forgotten History of Autism, has been viewed more than a million times and translated into 35 languages. He lives with his husband Keith in San Francisco.
