Jon Patch talks to Tristan Donovan, author of Feral Cities: Adventures with Animals in the Urban Jungle. We tend to think of cities as a realm apart, somehow separate from nature, but nothing could be further from the truth. In Feral Cities Tristan Donovan digs below the urban gloss to uncover the wildlife that we share our streets and homes with.

Born in London in 1975, Tristan Donovan is a non-fiction author and freelance journalist/editor who planned to become an ecologist before getting distracted by journalism.
His first two books are Replay: The History of Video Games and Fizz: How Soda Shook Up the World. That playing too many video games while drinking too much soda featured heavily in his childhood is just coincidence.
His latest book, Feral Cities: Adventures with Animals in the Urban Jungle, finally put that ecology degree to use.
He lives in East Sussex, in the UK, with two ham-obsessed dachshunds.
