Description

A yearlong adventure through the world's oceans with Philip Hoare, the award-winning author of The WhaleIn colorful prose and lively line drawings, Hoare sets out to rediscover the sea and its islands, birds, and beasts. Starting at his home on the shores of Britain's Southampton Water and moving in ever widening circles--like the migration patterns of whales--Hoare explores London, the Isle of Wight, the Azores, Sri Lanka, Tasmania, and New Zealand.As Hoare brilliantly weaves together literary and natural history, we encounter memorable people as well as the dolphins, whales, and other creatures above and below the water (even one species formerly believed to 
be extinct).Echoing the fine tradition of W. G. Sebald, but in a voice all Hoare's own, The Sea Inside is bursting with an endless series of delights and revelations from the ever-changing sea.

A yearlong adventure through the world's oceans with Philip Hoare, the award-winning author of The Whale

In colorful prose and lively line drawings, Hoare sets out to rediscover the sea and its islands, birds, and beasts. Starting at his home on the shores of Britain's Southampton Water and moving in ever widening circles--like the migration patterns of whales--Hoare explores London, the Isle of Wight, the Azores, Sri Lanka, Tasmania, and New Zealand.

As Hoare brilliantly weaves together literary and natural history, we encounter memorable people as well as the dolphins, whales, and other creatures above and below the water (even one species formerly believed to 
be extinct).

Echoing the fine tradition of W. G. Sebald, but in a voice all Hoare's own, The Sea Inside is bursting with an endless series of delights and revelations from the ever-changing sea.
