About the Author

Chris Yates is an angler, photographer, tea connoisseur and prolific writer with contributions to the Idler magazine and former Editor of Waterlog magazine. He is a celebrated British fisherman and author of How To Fish, which has variously been described as containing 'more good sense than all those effete-aesthete fishing narratives put together' (Conde Nast Traveller) and as 'a gem of a book' (The Field). He is also known for his other books - Falling in Again, The Secret Carp, The Deepening Pool, Casting at the Sun, River Diary and Four Seasons - and the BBC2 series A Passion for Angling.

Reviews

`Wonderful stuff' Independent on Sunday `There can be few who have explained so elegantly both the zen-like trance of the serious fisherman and the all-too-active comedy of preparation, expedition and return' Guardian `Chris Yates is a god' Conde Nast Traveller `A wonderfully elegiac book' Big Issue `lyrical and haunting...Yates' narrative is presented as an account of a midsummer countryside walk...Its beauty lies in its tenderness about the world and the author's personal responses to what he hears, feels and smells...It stayed with me a long time after I finished.' Rachel Joyce, The Times `This book is the result of following a whim to its natural conclusion. It's about time and losing track of it. Chris Yates doesn't really want his wanderings to end, and neither will you. It's a wonderful book, and I'm happy to recommend it without qualification.' Marcus Berkmann, Daily Mail `there is no doubt about the elegance and precision of Yates' language, or his ability to conjure up an atmosphere... perhaps this is the real beauty of Nightwalk, and the true value of Yates' gift as a writer: that it gives back the night to us, offers up a sense of freedom in the place of anxiety, reminds us of the silence in the midst of its bustling life, and soothes our atavistic fear of the dark while never quite permitting us to be complacent.' EarthLines `Chris's existing and extensive fan-base, the anglers, will find a freedom in Nightwalk...I believe this is [his] finest work to date...What is certain, though, is that Nightwalk will delight for many, many years to come.' Kevin Parr, Caught By the River `In Yates's darkest England, four delightful decades of meandering nostalgia, curiosity and hedonism meet creatures of the night in the finest tradition of country writing.' BBC Wildlife
