In the two tales that make up this volume, the bestselling author of The Fly Trap continues his exploration of the pleasures and trials of the people who study the smallest details of the natural world. In his characteristic blend of memoir and nature writing, he recalls his childhood and his career as a hoverfly collector, traces the lives of forgotten entomologists who left Sweden for the United States, and reflects on ambition, fear, romance and the richness of life.
