Publisher's Synopsis

Previously published as NOT FORGETTING THE WHALE

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

'A gentle and uplifting tale of warding off apocalypse in a remote corner of Cornwall . . . charming' Financial Times

For fans of ELEANOR OLIPHANT, THE ROSIE PROJECT & THE UNLIKELY PILGRIMAGE OF HAROLD FRY.

It all began with the whale.

When a young man washes up on the sands of St Piran in Cornwall, it is clear to the villagers that this is not a regular day. What has brought him here? And what is the crisis only he understands, that threatens not only their community but all of civilisation?

With a global pandemic on the horizon, and a whale lurking in the bay, the villagers of St Piran must band together to survive. Intimate, funny and heart-warming, John Ironmonger tells a compelling story about the important things that hold us together, and how hope can be found, even at the end of the world.

'Fun, uplifting, charming' Financial Times

'A warm-hearted book crammed with ideas . . . very, very good' Emerald Street

'A tremendously enjoyable book' Independent on Sunday
