‘When I read Robert Macfarlane’s beautiful essay, The Gifts of Reading – which is about friendship, giving books, and the cathartic power of walking – a plan crystallised in my mind to go on an adventure Harriet would have loved.’

Listen to our friend and Slightly Foxed contributor Robert Macfarlane reading from The Gifts of Reading, specially recorded in support of Katy MacMillan-Scott and her upcoming literary hike across Europe.
