A New “Baby” in the House! Mushroom: A Global History, That Is

Mushroom book rs

I just wanted to share with all of you an exciting moment: I just laid eyes on my new book – Mushroom: A Global History – and promptly burst into tears. I just couldn’t keep a stiff upper lip when I saw the result of years of work on my part and on the part of Reaktion Books UK.

A big “Thank you” to everyone for all your support, comments, and inspiration.



  • Cynthia – CONGRATULATIONS! How proud to be a moher. You have contributed so much. I wanted to phone but lost your phone number. I’m in the hospital , back pains led to the discovry of cancer. Haad radiation. Chemo to start soon. Getting stronger each day. Wanted you to kown how proud I was of you.ann


  • I totally understand the bursting into tears, its the joys of ‘see what I made’ – late nights, words that didn’t sit right and eventually through the toil….here it is. Congratulations.


  • Congratulations!

    Is there anything sweeter than opening a box full of the first copies of one’s new book?

  • Congratulations! She looks beautiful, just like you! Her gestation may have been more than nine months but she was worth the wait. May she have a long, healthy and properous shelf life.
