Summary

This is my manifesto for morning.

There is an energy in the earlier hours, an awareness I enjoy. In today's world we tend to wake as late as we can, timed to when we have to work. But we don't need to chase the day.

In Morning, Allan Jenkins shows how getting up earlier even once a week or month can free us to be more imaginative, to maybe read, to walk, to write. He talks to other early risers such as Jamie Oliver and Samuel West, to poets and painters. We hear from a neuroscientist about sleep, a philosopher about dawn, a fisherman about light. Allan wakes early; he listens; he looks. He introduces us to a secret world.

This is a celebration of dawn and morning: the best time of day.

Critic reviews

Praise for Allan Jenkins: "Plot 29 is a superbly written testament to the power of earth to nourish and heal. The writing is taut and honed to a sinewy strength, but rich with evocation and delight...I loved it." (Monty Don)

"The sort of book you never forget reading: devastating, haunting and utterly beautiful." (India Knight)
"An absolutely original book. Absolutely brilliant. The best family memoir I've read in years." (Bill Buford)

Fellow larks

As a lark, hearing other morning voices and their routines was inspiring. I love my quiet mornings but this book gave me pause to consider patterns other than my established ones to make more of those lovely, solitary dawns.
