One of our favourite travel books of the past decade was James Attlee's debut, Isolarion, a journey around the author's own Oxford neighbourhood, published to acclaim by the University of Chicago Press. In this follow-up, Nocturne, the author starts again outside his own front door, but this time travels further - in both space and time - in a dazzling journey in search of moonlight and its meanings, in art, in literature, in music and in our lives. With a wonderfully original voice and style, James Attlee's Nocturne is a uniquely illuminating traveller's tale, and we are delighted to be publishing him alongside fellow writer-wanderers W. G. Sebald, Iain Sinclair and Roger Deakin.
