Reviews

A finely faceted meditation on memory, love, landscape - and finding a home in language. Its short, shining sections tilt yearningly towards one another; in form as well as content, this is a beautiful book about the distance between people and between places, and the means of their bridging - Robert MacfarlaneA beautiful, fully-realised tribute to a family and a brave, diligent search for understanding in the mist - Amy LiptrotTwo Trees Make a Forest takes a twisting path through mountain passes, over tree roots, by spoon billed birds and into a family's past. In this thoughtful memoir, Lee asks the reader to wonder, what makes a homeland? Is it language, family, landscape? I was left with a full heart and a longing to learn the name of each tree that lines my own past - Rowan Hisayo BuchananA subtle, powerful exploration of the relationship between people and place, and a luminous evocation of an extraordinary landscape - Melissa HarrisonBoth clear-eyed and tender hearted, Two Trees Make a Forest is a profound and gorgeously written meditation on the natural and familial environments that shape us. Jessica J Lee is a poetic talent keenly attentive to the mysterious and sublime - Sharlene Teo
