Reviews

Quietly prophetic.--Jedediah Purdy
Underland is a profound reckoning with humankind's self-imperiled position in nature's eternal order. At once thrilling and soulful, raw and erudite, it is a book of revelations.--Philip Gourevitch
An excellent book--fearless and subtle, empathic and strange.--Dwight Garner
Profound in every sense of the word.--Richard Powers
Reading Macfarlane connects us to dazzling new worlds. It's a connection that brings, more than anything else, joy.--Barbara J. King
Brilliant.--Peter Fish
Exquisite.--Ryan J. Haupt
Underland is a devastating act of witness and a clear, cogent, lyrical examination of the darknesses invisible beneath our feet.--Lauren Groff
