Savage Gods by Paul Kingsnorth

After moving with his wife and two children to a smallholding in Ireland, Paul Kingsnorth expected to find contentment. It was the goal he had sought — to nest, to find home — after years of rootlessness as an environmental activist and author. Instead he found that his tools as a writer were failing him, calling into question his foundational beliefs about language and setting him at odds with culture itself.

After moving with his wife and two children to a smallholding in Ireland, Paul Kingsnorth expected to find contentment. It was the goal he had sought — to nest, to find home — after years of rootlessness as an environmental activist and author. Instead he found that his tools as a writer were failing him, calling into question his foundational beliefs about language and setting him at odds with culture itself.

Informed by his travels across the world, the writings of D.H. Lawrence and Annie Dillard, and the day-to-day travails of farming his own land, Savage Gods asks: what does it mean to belong? What sacrifices must be made in order to truly inhabit a life? And can words ever paint the truth of the world – or are they part of the great lie which is killing it?
