A Spotify playlist of snow songs… opening with the music from the Radio 4 Book of the Week adaptation, and ending with a song written especially for the book by The Bookshop Band, A Memory of the Magic Stuff.

Beautifully published on October 6th 2016 by the excellent people at Little Toller, ‘SNOW’ is a monograph exploring a subject I’m a little bit obsessed with, one I’ve returned to many times in my novels.

You can order directly from Little Toller here (and please consider doing so; it helps a small, independent publishing house enormously).

Snow was aired on BBC Radio 4 between Christmas and New Year 2016, as Book of the Week.

Sedgwick is a deft writer with a warm and confiding tone. He wears his learning lightly and is especially good at conjuring atmosphere.
