‘Delightful …  This is   not  a  book following the geography of the sea; nor is it a history of sailing. It is  an attempt to establish  and examine the oneness that the Maori  have understood  for years: There is no difference between life on land and life in the sea …’ –Kirkus

Philip Hoare, winner of the 2009 Samuel Johnson Prize  for  non-fiction, is  the broadcaster and author of Leviathan or, The Whale. He was born in Southampton in 1958. He is the author of five other works of non-fiction including Spike Island: The Memory of a Military Hospital (2000), and England’s Lost Eden: Adventures in a Victorian Utopia (2005). Hoare wrote and presented the BBC Arena film, The Hunt for Moby-Dick, and directed three films for BBC’s Whale Night. He is co-curator, with Angela Cockayne, of the Moby-Dick Big Read.
