Leviathan or, The Whale by Philip Hoare

(Fourth Estate / Atico de los Libros, Spain / Mare Verlag, Germany / Einuadi, Italy; The Whale, Ecco USA).

Winner of 2009 BBC Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction. A gripping voyage of discovery into the heart of an obsession.

‘Philip Hoare was long been acclaimed as a brilliantly unconventional writer … This is the book he was born to write, a classic of its kind’, Rachel Cooke, The Observer.
