Julian Bishop raises ‘an army of stubborn weeds’ in this dark but sometimes humorous Ecopoetry collection. From the bowels of Whitechapel in London, to the intricacies of jellyfish, Bishop brings to life the most important fight known to man: climate change, documenting the changes to our planet and the attitudes of humanity across the globe towards it.
