William Atkins revives the great British tradition of travel writing by recording his journeys to the earth's most desolate, inspiring places: deserts.
William Atkins grew up in Hampshire and now lives in North London. After studying Art History, he went on to work in publishing and edited prize-winning fiction. He now works as a freelance editor while studying and writing about Britain's marginal landscapes. His previous book, The Moor, was shortlisted for the 2015 Thwaites Wainwright Prize.
