Welcome to our annual Environment issue – guest edited by the award-winning young historian Billy Griffiths. Never has this themed issue been more timely. Many of the contributors share our concern – and that of countless environmentalists and scientists globally (including Greta Thunberg, who appears on our cover) – about the climate crisis. Elsewhere we have reviews of books by writers such as J.M. Coetzee, Heather Rose, Lisa Taddeo and Lisa Gorton. We also name the twenty most popular twenty-first-century novels as voted by readers in the ABR FAN poll.
