Description


Showcases some of the most compelling parts of the J. A. Baker Archive, containing previously unknown details of Baker's life as well as extracts from his own personal writing. It provides an invaluable new insight into both the sensitive, passionate character of J. A. Baker, and the state of late twentieth-century Britain, a country experiencing the throes of agricultural and environmental revolutions.

Hetty Saunders was first introduced to J. A. Baker and the Baker Archive as a literature postgraduate at the University of Cambridge. She was instantly captivated by the astounding prose of Baker's first book, The Peregrine, and the mysterious life of its author.
