Author’s comments – Corona Radiata

In some ways, Corona Radiata may be my favourite book. In writing this sequence, I found a voice clearing a space for it in my mind. The voice is partly that of the developing child, partly that of the world waiting to receive her—a synthesis of the world that is creating her, and the child who is creating a world.

Finding this place was a great joy to me. It became a nexus for many things that have interested me over the years: the science of the brain, the history and making of maps, folklore, fable and philosophy. It is a great pleasure to have the book published by St. Thomas Press. The series provides exactly the right size, format and spirit to suit this particular voyage.
