Fossil Sunshine reviewed in TLS


Andrew McCulloch has reviewed Michael McKimm’s Fossil Sunshine in the Times Literary Supplement, writing:

‘Michael McKimm’s Fossil Sunshine (Worple Press) was written to help present the scientific evidence for climate change.  Appropriately enough, McKimm follows Tennyson – a keen champion of science – in imagining, in “Riptide”, a modern-day Kraken rising from the seabed, with terrifying consequences: “what’s incubated in the depths now free / swollen, then breathing… / and quickening in water”. Tennyson’s leviathan can sleep until Judgement Day: if we are as close to the carbon trigger as scientists believe, that could be sooner than we think. Read these poems!’
