Description

Every minute was magical, every single thing it did was fascinating and everything it didn't do was equally wondrous, and to be sat there with a kestrel, a real live kestrel, my own real live kestrel on my wrist! I felt like I'd climbed through a hole in heaven's fence.

An introverted, unusual young boy, isolated by his obsessions and a loner at school, Chris Packham was only at home in the fields and woods around his suburban home. But when he stole a young kestrel from its nest, he was about to embark on a friendship that would teach him what it meant to love - and that would change him forever.

In his rich, lyrical and emotionally exposing memoir, Chris brings to life his childhood in the '70s, from his bedroom bursting with fox skulls, birds' eggs and sweaty jam jars to his feral adventures. But pervading his story is the search for freedom, meaning and acceptance in a world that didn't understand him. Beautifully wrought, this coming-of-age memoir will be unlike any you've ever heard.

Honest and poignant and fascinating memoir

What did you love best about Fingers in the Sparkle Jar?

How the writer communicated his wonderful love for animals and the natural world, as well as how this intense love effected him so profoundly. I loved the title Fingers in the Sparkle Jar and really enjoyed how it was written. I was aware Chris Packham was a television wildlife presenter but knew nothing else about him, this book has inspired me to rekindle a proper love of nature in my own life. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful and personal tale.
