As a nation we are famously obsessed with the weather, and this book is only going to fuel that obsession. Richard Mabey weaves together science, art and memoirs to consider the impact of the weather on our national identity. As heard on BBC Radio 3's Changing Climates, Mabey covers everything from Saharan dust and umbrella sales to golden summers and herring falling from the sky. Just promise us one thing - that you'll never apologise again for talking about the weather!
