David Gessner on Nature Writing

September 26, 2010

David Gessner is a nature writer who's sick of nature and most nature writing. In his essay "My Green Manifesto" and in this conversation with Steve Paulson, Gessner makes the case for wilder, messier, more eccentric writing. Gesner's books include "Sick of Nature" and "Soaring with Fidel." He's the editor of Ecotone, an environmental literary magazine.
