Prize-winning author Benjamin Myers releases new non-fiction book Under The Rock on Thursday 17th May as he brings the poetry of a place to life. The Durham-born author, journalist and poet explores nature and literature in a daring new work.

With a gift for the atmospheric in his novels, he uses that same talent to show his exploration of Scout Rock, a ten wooded acre site which has been a fascination for over a decade. He interweaves his notes, threaded through sections to make the unremarkable truly remarkable. It’s a work that is focused on landscape and place and is another step on this special writer cementing himself as more than just a cult favourite.
