Leviathan (or the Whale)

Philip Hoare

From his childhood fascination with the gigantic models of London's Natural History Museum to adult encounters with the wild animals themselves, Philip Hoarse has been obsessed y whales. Switching between human history and natural history, this book is a gripping voyage of discovery into the heart of this obsession.

"An elegent writer with a sharp eye for quirky detail . . . A lyrical and timely reminder of what we have to lose if we don't change our greedy ways"

 - Mail on Sunday

"In Hoare's hands, whales are almost limitlessly strange and interesting"

 - Sunday Times

"As well as descriptive prose of great beauty, Leviathan is full of fascinating facts"

 - Guardian
