Underground Lovers: Encounters with fungi
Nov. 22, 2022
Alison Pouliot
Non-fiction: General/Other
Fungi offer a way to imagine life differently.

Underground Lovers brings us down to earth, and deeper, to dwell with fungal allies and aliens, discover how fungi hold forests together, and why humans are deeply entwined with these unruly renegades of the subterrain.

Told through first-hand stories — from the Australian desert to Iceland’s glaciers to America’s Cascade Mountains — Alison Pouliot shares encounters with glowing ghost fungi and the enigma of the lobster mushroom. Melding science and personal reflection, we look at the fungi that appear after fire, how fungi and climate change interact, the role of fungi in ecosystem restoration, and more.

What can we learn from the lives of fungi? Underground Lovers brings us to our knees, magnifier in hand, to find out.
