description

“Unpredictable and amusing and informative and original, cavorting between biology, history, travel writing, and memoir.”

—Mark Kurlansky

 

The Whale by Philip Hoare is a enthralling and eye-opening literary leviathan swimming in similar bestselling waters as Cod and The Secret Life of Lobsters. Winner of the BBC Samuel Johnson Prize for Nonfiction, The Whale is a lively travelogue through the history, literature, and lore of the king of the sea—the remarkable mammals that we human beings have long been fascinated with, from Moby Dick to Free Willy. Bestselling author and naturalist Bernd Heinrich calls it, “a moving and extraordinary book,” and Hoare’s sparkling account of swimming with these incredible behemoths will delight whale and wildlife aficionados, lovers of the sea and sea stories, as well as the socially and environmentally conscious reader.

Philip Hoare is the author of biographies of Stephen Tennant and Noël Coward and the historical studiesWilde''s Last Stand,Spike IslandandEngland''s Lost Eden. He is also the writer and presenter of the BBCArenafilm,The Hunt for Moby-Dick. He lives in Southampton, England.
