Summary
Warm, funny and insightful, 'The Fly Trap' is a meditation on collecting; be it hoverflies or fine art. A fascinating web of associations, it begins with Sjöberg's own tranquil experience as an entomologist on a remote island in Sweden, and takes in heroic historical expeditions to Burma and the wilderness of Kamchatka. Along the way, Sjöberg pauses to reflect on a range of ideas - slowness, art, freedom, - drawing other great writers, like D.H Lawrence and Bruce Chatwin, into dialogue. From the everyday to the exotic, 'The Fly Trap' revels in the wonder of the natural world and leaves a trail of memorable images and stories
