The Stubborn Light of Things

Melissa Harrison

I am a nature writer and novelist, and I’m lucky enough to be able to walk out of my cottage straight into Suffolk’s beautiful open countryside. For six months – as spring 2020 broke over the British Isles, and summer turned to autumn – I documented the wonder and richness of the natural world and the changing seasons and brought the outdoors into as many locked-down homes as I could.

  • The Stubborn Light of Things

    Melissa Harrison, despite the fact that I too live amongst what you describe in your interesting and human episodes, they are food and drink to me. You have put into words everything I see and feel around me here in Norfolk and now I can feel your company here too. more

  • Just amazing

    Very different, brilliant, and so sad it had to end. Her ability to immediately transport you to a summer walk in the Suffolk countryside never ceases to amaze me. It’s joy and is a wondrous gift to the world that should be shared as widely as possible.

  • A beautiful podcast

    This podcast really is something special. It is so beautifully put together and I feel as if a lot of thought has gone into it. It's lovely to go along on the walks through countryside and to delight in the appearances of wildlife. I find the excerpts from the past so interesting and it was wonderful to see it matching up with changes in the present. The guests also contribute a lot. I'm looking forward to reading the book and gifting it as well. Thank you for this beautiful piece of work

  • Cornucopia

    Melissa, your podcast Stubborn Light of Things served as haven, a ramble through a curated landscape of nature and literature. We walked in a giant loop, denoted by the opening and closing poems you shared – Brackenberry’s “Brockhampton” and Zagajewski’s “Try to Praise the Mutilated World,” in which you bookended the podcase with two instances of the stubborn light of things. more
