Soundings, a prize-winning memoir in which Doreen Cunningham tells how she and her young son followed the migration of grey whales from the lagoons of Mexico to the glaciers of the Arctic, was one of my favourite books of 2022. It’s now out in paperback, and I’m delighted to say you can read an extract here on Deskbound Traveller. Thanks to the publisher, Virago, I have five copies to give away; to be in with a chance of winning one, just retweet when I mention the competition on Twitter on either @kerraway or @deskboundtravel.
Doreen Cunningham will be talking about Soundings with the writer and editor Eric Wagner at the Review bookshop, in Peckham, London, on February 6.
