Lisa Robertson: THE WEATHER

In 1997, Reality Street co-published Lisa Robertson's acclaimed Debbie: an Epic with New Star Books, Vancouver, Canada. Four years later we were happy to repeat the collaboration by co-publishing The Weather,which was written following Lisa's six-month Judith E Wilson visiting fellowship at the University of Cambridge.

Influenced by the BBC shipping forecast, Wordsworth’s The Prelude, Constable, Cobbett and others, The Weather is an energising brew.
