Will Cohu writes fiction and non-fiction exploring the relationship between people and landscape.
His books include The Wolf Pit (Chatto, 2012), a memoir of Yorkshire, for which he was shortlisted for the Pen/Ackerley Award and Nothing But Grass (Chatto, 2015) a novel set in Lincolnshire Wolds, where he still lives. He has twice been shortlisted for the Sunday Times/EFG Prize.
He is a regular contributor to national newspapers and magazines, and has published a popular guide to trees, Out of The Woods (Short Books, 2015).
Will scrutinises ordinary working lives in his most recent novel and Tendai wonders why we mention landscape at all given the novel’s interiority; they are joined by award-winning Sarah Hall whose novel The Wolf Border takes us into a more violent wilderness.
