Read the review 45Author: Guardian Staff. Nudibranch Elegies is a book that repeatedly takes the reader into places that exist in between two seemingly opposite worlds – at the edges of the natural world and the imaginal realm; near the border of the numinous and the sensual; on the threshold of the outer and the inner. With one foot firmly planted in each world – one in science.
