Susan Brind Morrow’s latest book will be released by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in December 2015.  The Dawning Moon of the Mind has been described as “a stunning and original interpretation of an ancient system of poetic, religious, and philosophical thought.” The book examines the impact of the Pyramid Texts, some of the world’s oldest poetry found in the Egyptian desert, as a formative work in the development of language and human thought.

Susan Brind Morrow is the author of several other works, including Wolves and Honey: A Hidden History of the Natural World and The Names of Things: A Passage in the Egyptian Desert. Visit her website at
