Reviews

"Warm, open-minded and endlessly curious, Jini is an ideal guide to Britain's more unusual places and people. Wanderland is a truly engaging exploration, full of heart and soul." --Melissa Harrison

"What a wonderful book Wanderland is! A witty, gentle, original and very modern quest for the magical (not the mythical) in Britain's landscape, which both made me laugh and moved me. I wish Roger Deakin could have read this book, for he would surely have recognised a kindred spirit in Jini Reddy." --Robert Macfarlane

"Curious and tenacious, Jini learns to accommodate both solitude and the gifts of chance, discovering at last a new way of being, a new way of seeing, a new way of listening to the complex voices of this archipelago - animal, aerial, human and other-than-human." --Katharine Norbury

"With an unusual but timely eco-spiritual edge, and an alluring blend of memoir and nature-writing this touches on themes of identity and belonging as it charts how a restless spirit fell in love with her native land." --Caroline Sanderson, Editor at The Bookseller (Editor's choice in the Bookseller)

"Wanderland is extraordinary, unique even, standing apart from recent books about the British countryside..... She is, she declares, lovesick: at times her prose has a dreamy, almost erotic charge." --Ben Hoare, Countryfile
