Snow by Marcus Sedgwick

‘a deft writer with a warm and confiding tone. He wears his learning lightly and is very good at conjuring atmosphere.’ The New Statesman

Marcus Sedgwick’s beautiful, best-selling, examination of snow, and our fascination with it, divided into six chapters, like the six sides of a snowflake.

  1. Julie Bull

    ‘Snow’ is a mesmerising book.
    Its range is surprising in a short memoir and I enjoyed the contemplation immensely. Marcus Sesgewuck is a profound and thoughtful writer.
    I recommend this book very highly.

    This incredibly beautiful and informative book has kept me company through the long dark days of…well, being a teacher in December. Reading a section each night was like going through the back of a wardrobe into a magical snowy forest. The text is littered with fascinating exophoria, leading onwards to more and more wintery pleasures. You won’t regret reading this book, it will keep you company on the darkest nights! RIP Marcus, a captivating writer indeed.
