John Boorman’s Nature Diary: One Eye, One Finger

12.00

In his eighty-eighth year, John Boorman uses his time in lockdown to reflect on the splendour of the surrounding nature of County Wicklow. Coccooning with his daughter and son among the hills of Annamoe, Boorman chronicles his daily walks and observations of the trees on his estate, writing with heightened appreciation of the beauties of his eyrie using only one eye and one finger. Poetry flows from his pen as he sits chairbound among his trees and flora: sycamores, limes, beech, oak, redwood, shrubs and flowers, birdsong and shifting skies are luminously recorded as the world falls silent.

With illustrations by Susan Morely, this slim but meditative volume is remarkable end-of-life narrative by the creator of The Emerald Forest, Excalibur and Deliverance – a swansong like no other.
