´This book has found a special place in my heart. Its as strange, beautiful and unexpected , as precise and exquisite in its movings, as bees in a hive. I loved it ´ HELEN MACDONALD, author of H IS FOR HAWK An intimate exploration of the heart and home, and a tantalising glimpse into an alien culture. A brave and delicate book, rich and fascinatingNick Hunt , author of Where the Wild Winds Are ´A profound, funny and sometimes deeply moving book that describes a year of inner city bee keeping, while dancing between the history of bees and us and what it means to be human in our modern world´ Julia Blackburn, author of Threads: The Delicate Life of John Craske A fascinating, insightful and inspiring account of a novice beekeeper´s year of keeping honeybees, which will appeal to readers of H is For Hawk and The Outrun Entering her thirties, Helen Jukes feels trapped in an urban grind of office politics and temporary addresses disconnected, stressed. Struggling to settle into her latest job and home in Oxford, she realises she needs to effect a change if shes to create a meaningful life for herself, one that can accommodate comfort and labour and love. Then friends give her the gift of a colony of honeybees according to folklore, bees freely given bring luck and Helen embarks on her first full year of beekeeping. But **what does it mean to keep wild creatures? In learning about the bees, what can she learn of herself? And can travelling inside the hive free her outside it? ** As Helen grapples with her role in the delicate, awe-inspiring ecosystem of the hive, the very act of keeping seems to open up new perspectives, deepen friendships old and new, and make her world come alive. A Honeybee Heart Has Five Openings is at once a fascinating exploration of the honeybee and the hive, the practices of honey-gathering and the history of our observation of bees; and a beautifully wrought meditation on responsibility and care, on vulnerability and trust, on forging bonds and breaking new ground. ´A mesmeric, lovely, quietly powerful book. A gentle but compelling account of the redemption that comes from relationship and attention´ Charles Foster, author of Being a Beast I raced through this really terrific, down-to-earth read. The existential threat to our entire ecosystem posed by the problems facing bees can be hard to grasp, but Helen manages to make this a very personal, human story that, hopefully, might inspire others to action´ Luke Turner , The Quietus Helen Jukes (Auteur) - Paru le 26/07/2018 chez Scribner UK Livre > Livre, Helen Jukes (Auteur)
