Nocturne : A Journey in Search of Moonlight, Paperback

Nocturne : A Journey in Search of Moonlight Paperback



For many of us the moon, and the chill light it casts, are things we either ignore or take for granted.

It wouldn't enter our heads therefore to set off around the world in search of moonlight.

But, as James Attlee's eccentric quest proves, we couldn't be more wrong.

From Normandy to Naples, Wales to Arizona, Las Vegas to Japan, Attlee explores moonlight's many moods and meanings.

Taking in the ancient and modern, art and literature, science and music, "Nocturne" travels far and deep to provide a portrait of an enigmatic light increasingly endangered in our over-illuminated world.
