“Australia lost a Senator, the world gained a luminous writer. Scott Ludlam’s Full Circle is at once a comic chronicle of the climate apocalypse, a heartbreaking work of paleohistory, a fugitive tourist diary, strange, uncategorisable and magnificent.” — Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved and The Value of Nothing

“Scott Ludlam ranges very far in space and time–the story stretches over hundreds of millions of years and every inch of our planet. His insights are often cogent and deep–and more than that, they’re earned.  His willingness to engage in the fight he’s describing gives his take on these existential questions real power.” — Bill McKibben, author The End of Nature

In the works since 2017, Full Circle is now available in your favourite bookshop or online. It’s a combination of travel journal, geohistory, systems theory and political polemic in which everything catches fire at the end. I hope you love this book.
