Product description

Review

Enchanting. It made even a capsized cynic like me feel more sentimental about the Thames. In fact, I am quite tempted to join Maiklem on the riverbed looking for treasure (Sunday Times)

Mudlarks are river scavengers, but Lara Maiklem is more like a time traveller. Her prose has none of the self-conscious sensibility that defines contemporary nature writing; her thoughtful sentences read as though she were talking to herself. There is a great deal to learn from these pages, not least the insight that finding lost things is the best way of losing yourself. It is, above all, her wisdom that makes Lara Maiklem such restful company (Guardian)

This is a quirky and delightful read, wonderfully evocative of London's gloopy, ghost-haunted river (Daily Mail)

Maiklem persists, in this weirdly engaging book, in seeking out a curious beauty. Maiklem's description of the fog is worthy of Dickens or Joseph Conrad. Maiklem pungently evokes the broken bridges, slippery river stairs, causeways, jetties and boatyards. No one has looked at these odd corners since Sherlock Holmes (Sunday Telegraph)

Maiklem's storytelling shines. Her imagined histories for her special finds read like waterborne fairy stories, a hard kernel of truth clothed in mythical finery. Reading it, I felt like I was down on the foreshore myself, sifting through the pages for titbits (Daily Telegraph)

A lovely, lyrical, gently meandering book, filled with fascinating diversions and detail (Literary Review)

Lara Maiklem reveals to us the fascinating and poignant micro-world of London's history; the fragments of life deposited on the tidal shores of the Thames. Mudlarking is a flowing river of human stories; beautiful, wondrous and eternal (Hallie Rubenhold)

Maiklem's enthusiasm is infectious, and her reimagining of the lives of those who parted with these items is an illuminated joy (i)

Whoever buys it is blessed. I love the fact that [Maiklem] makes herself the centre of this huge, timeless, endless story that reaches from the distant past and flows past all our consciousnesses out to a place far beyond the reach of the estuary. Lara is such a natural writer; every page just tingles with her imagination. It is a love letter to life itself (Ian Mortimer)

This book is as great a treasure as any of the fascinating and eclectic finds that the author has unearthed along the Thames over the years. The narrative ebbs and flows like the river itself, revealing London's rich history, its modern day landscape and a wealth of poignant personal reflections. One of the best books I've read in years (Tracy Borman)
