Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures

by Merlin Sheldrake, 353 pages, 5x8, paperback. Want something to take your mind off a virus? Try a fungus! This winter, as we stay closer to home, a good book could be considered an essential service, especially one infused with curiosity and a breadth of perspective. Right from the opening words we understand the scope to consider: “Fungi are changing the way life happens, as they have done for more than a billion years. They are eating rock, making soil, digesting pollutants, nourishing and killing plants, surviving in space, inducing visions, producing food, making medicines, manipulating animal behavior and influencing the composition of the earth’s atmosphere.” A romp through fungi sex; the manipulation of ants into zombies; diaper-digesting fungi in landfills—each page is a revelation. Who can resist an author who concludes, “Now that this book is made, I can hand it over to fungi to unmake. I’ll dampen a copy and feed it with Pleurotus mycelium. When it has eaten its way through the words and pages and endpapers and sprouted oyster mushrooms from the covers, I’ll eat them.” Now that’s eating your words! -Nikos Kavanya.
