Not Forgetting The Whale


Joe Haak washes up, naked, on a beach in Cornwall.

He’s an analyst for a city bank and fled the city in fear that he’d caused a global financial meltdown.

Then there’s a ‘flu pandemic. . .

I enjoyed this book the first time I read it. I enjoyed  rereading it even more at the weekend.

This is a story about connections – human and financial.

It’s funny and sad and hopeful.

The writing is lyrical and the story is a heartwarming, and timely, modern fable.

Not Forgetting The Whale  by John Ironmonger, published by Weidenfield & Nicolson, 2015.
