Checked into two Zimbabwean fiction – We Need New Names (Noviolet Bulawayo) and Nervous Conditions (Tsitsi Dangarembga). Latter echoes of Lina and Lila’s relationships in Neopolitan Quartet (Elena Ferrante). A hot September extended the swimming season at Parliament Hill Lido. Visits to Nattergal’s first re-wilding site near Grantham, also Knepp Estate and overnight camping at Heal, Somerset. Impressive climate-environment show at Saatchi Gallery, and new composting community found at The Barbican.
