From the author of Cyclegeography comes an evocative defence of an unpopular bird, which may change your perspective on pigeons. After moving to suburbia Jon Day felt unsettled. So he built a backyard coop and joined a pigeon racing club. Combining memoir, science, philosophy and popular culture, Homing looks at how we connect with nature, asking why birds and humans regularly make for home – and whether we can learn from our feathered frenemies.
