Now posting on Vulpes Libris: Hope Jahren’s Lab Girl

Jahren 2I posted a keen and enthusiastic review of Hope Jahren’s Lab Girl a few days ago on Vulpes Libris: do go and read it! It’s about science, plants, sexism, explosions, Minnesota determination and some bloody hard work writing funding applications to keep the lab going through bipolar interruptions because her lab technician is sleeping in a camper van whose engine can’t start till its cool and the graduate student just crashed the hire van on a field trip because she’s never driven in snow before. You will never not wear protective glasses in a laboratory again.
