Lab Girl – A Story of Trees, Science & Love – Hope Jahren. Paperback (rrp £8.99). New/unread. Lab Girl is a book about work and about love, and the mountains that can be moved when those two things come together. It is told through Jahren’s remarkable stories: about discoveries made in her lab as well as her struggle to get there; about her field trips – sometimes authorised, sometimes very much not – taking her from the American Midwest to the North Pole and from Iceland to Hawaii; about her unswerving dedication to her life’s work. “Visceral, intimate, gloriously candid and sometimes extremely funny”.
