THE STORY OF A MAN WHO HAD GIVEN UP HOPE...
...AND THE VILLAGE THAT GAVE IT BACK TO HIM

'Will restore your faith in humanity' Elle UK

'A gentle and uplifting tale set in a remote corner of Cornwall' Financial Times

'As the front pages crowd with headlines that grow ever more grim, Not Forgetting the Whale offers a very welcome alternative' Independent

When a young City trader, Joe, washes up on the sands of St Piran in Cornwall, warning of a global financial apocalypse, he is rescued by the villagers, and given a home.

From the retired village doctor and the beachcomber, to the priest's wife and the flamboyant romantic novelist, they take this lost soul into their midst.

But are Joe's fears unfounded?
Why has Joe fled the city for St Piran?
And what of the whale that lurks in the bay?

Intimate, funny and heart-warming, Not Forgetting the Whale is a story about community, about the best and worst in our nature - and the search for a place to call home.

Rezensionen
a warm-hearted book crammed with interesting ideas. It's a book full of doomsday predictions with a Cityboy in a starring role that makes the world seem like a more hopeful place. It's also very, very good. EMERALD STREET 20250223
