The Fish Ladder, with Katharine Norbury
Combining travelogue, memoir, exquisite nature writing and fragments of poems with tales from Celtic mythology, The Fish Ladder has a rare resonance. Katharine’s moving and lyrical story of self-discovery is a portrait of motherhood, of a literary marriage, a hymn to the adoptive family – but perhaps most of all it is a meditation on the majesty of the natural world.

‘The Fish Ladder is truly compelling… Warm and touching, its impact lies in its simplicity and emotional power’ Jo Brand
