The Old Man and the Sand Eel

Review ‘A wonderfully fluent account of how the strange magic of water and the beings that inhabit it can enchant and intoxicate.’ —Chris Yates'[Will Millard] is a master wordsmith and his first book is a joyful testament to that.’ —Heat’The writing is sharp and clever . . . I loved all of it and would as happily read it again as I would sit beside the river waiting for the evening rise of trout to begin.’ —Literary Review'[Will Millard] writes with a genuine sense of humility . . . humour and reflection.’ —Countryfile’This is post-modern nature writing that embraces beauty where it finds it and marvels at nature’s tenacity . . . But there’s more here than just fish. This is also a book about growing up, about how to retain a connection with those who raised you while forging your own identity—what to keep and what to discard. And it’s about men. The strong surges of emotion that both draw them together and keep them apart, and the shared pastimes which recognise that intimacy and meaning aren’t always accompanied by words.’ —Geographical’Delightful and informative . . . beautifully drawn . . .The Old Man and The Sand Eel will be enjoyed by anyone who loves the challenge and mystery of baiting a hook and plopping it into the water.’ —Spectator Read more About the Author Will Millard is a British writer, explorer, and BBC presenter. Will spent his 20s criss-crossing the forests and remotest West Papua in search of ancient tribal trade routes, before his solo descent of a West African river, which became an acclaimed series for BBC Radio 4. In 2015 he lived alongside Aboriginal whale harpooners and subsistence-hunting sea-nomads as part of his maiden television series Hunters of the South Seas for BBC 2. He regularly writes for Geographical, Outdoor Fitness, the Daily Telegraph, and Vice magazine. Read more
