The shape of further things

(1970)
speculations on change
A non fiction book by

 
'Earth is charged with a beauty we are destroying...' So begins this unique book, in which joy and doom intermingle. It spans one month in the life of Aldiss and his wife Margaret and family, living in the peaceful Oxfordshire countryside. Here's a tapestry of provocative meditations, theories of dreams, of the Moon as real estate, and the role of technology and pollution in our lives - all served up with soup and sausage rolls. Aldiss speaks of 'The sheer delight of being alive' - and captures that delight here.
