About the Author:

Roger Deakin, who died in 2006, was a writer, filmmaker and environmentalist of international renown. He was a founder member of Friends of the Earth, and co-founded Common Ground. He lived for thirty-eight years in a moated farmhouse in Suffolk. Waterlog, which was first published in 1999, became a word-of-mouth bestseller, and is now an established classic of the nature writing canon.

Review:

"Deakin has written an aquatic Songlines." -- Heathcote Williams "I jumped in with both feet and wanted to stay for more." -- Griff Rhys-Jones "Erudite, funky and passionate, a total delight" * Independent on Sunday * "Charmingly and elegantly written" * Daily Telegraph * "A delicious, cleansing, funny, wise and joyful book, so wonderfully full of energy and life. I loved it" -- Jane Gardam
