Knit to This: James Rebanks on Desert Island Discs

Dear Ann,

Here’s a gem: James Rebanks, aka The Herdy Shepherd, on the Desert Island Discs radio show.

Although it’s only a small consolation for missing @herdyshepherd1 on my Twitter feed (especially at lambing time—sob!), he’s a good talker and it’s good fun.

Rebanks is the author of The Shepherd’s Life: Modern Dispatches from an Ancient Landscape, which is one of the best books I’ve ever read. He’s a beautiful writer, whether on Twitter or on the printed page. Up top is a video trailer for the book.

If you don’t cry when he talks about his dad, as the kids say: get help.

And his eight musical selections are great, too.
