Fungi are unlike any other living thing—they possess an almost magical uniqueness. Welcome to this astonishing world.

Fungi can thrive anywhere, from desert dunes to frozen tundra. They can invade our bodies and reside between our toes or floorboards. They are both unwelcome intruders and vastly expensive delicacies, representing both death and eternal life. Despite their familiar presence, much remains to be discovered about the eruption, growth, and decay of their secret, interconnected world.

Aliya Whiteley has always been fascinated by fungi—from her childhood days of capturing blurry photographs of strange fungal eruptions on Exmoor to her career as a writer inspired by their surreal and alien beauty. This love for fungi is a love for life, from single-cell spores to the largest living organism on the planet, a narrative spanning from Aliya’s lawn into orbit and back again via every continent.

From fields, feasts, and fairy rings to death caps, puffballs, and ambrosia beetles, this is an intoxicating journey into the life of an extraordinary organism, one that we have barely begun to understand.
