The History of Bees: The Radio 2 Bookclub selection
By Maja Lunde
In the spirit of Station Eleven and Never Let Me Go, this dazzling and ambitious literary debut follows three generations of beekeepers from the past, present, and future, weaving a spellbinding story of their relationship to the bees – and to their children and one another-against the backdrop of an urgent, global crisis.Tweet
I thought this was a really interesting book, moving between three different times and locations, each centered around the role of bees. Fascinating, and scary at times, as it paints a future without bees. It was also an interesting insight into relationships between generations.
