About the Author
Jay Owens is a writer, researcher, and digital strategist. Her graduate thesis in geography at University College London explored dust as a medium of the domestic uncanny, and, after a journey to the parched desert hinterland of Los Angeles, she developed this idea into the e-mail newsletter Disturbances, followed by a program for BBC Radio 4--and then this book, her first. She has written for the Guardian, New Humanist, and other publications and speaks at design, media, and arts conferences and events. She works at the London Review of Books and lives in London.
"This is brilliant... Owens is a serious writer: impassioned but intelligent, powerful but subtle ... [a] first-class writer and deep-thinking environmentalist. This book is original and exciting."-- "Sunday Times"
"Owens takes on. . . many of the stories in Dust with admirable even-handedness, an impressive depth of research and a clear eye for complexities."-- "the Guardian"
