By Melissa Harrison

Autumn is a time of transformation. Crisp, transparent days mark summer’s shut and bring in a brand new season with its wealthy scents and bright palette, leaves flaming crimson and gold by means of day, bonfires and fireworks lights up the lengthening nights. there's abundance, as people and animals make shops for the iciness; and there's decay, which supplies upward push to the subsequent cycle of life.

In prose and poetry from around the British Isles, Autumn captures either the excitement and the depression of this turning element within the 12 months. that includes unique writing via Horatio Clare, John Lewis-Stempel and Amy Liptrot, vintage extracts from the paintings of Ted Hughes, Helen Macdonald and Nan Shepherd, and a wealth of unpolluted new voices, Autumn is an evocative occasion of the year’s decline – and new beginnings.
