John launched his book in Truro on 5th March, St Piran’s Day. Set in afictional Cornish coastal village ‘Not Forgetting the Whale’ is feel-good apocalyptic fable about a stranger who washes up on the beach. A modern day re-telling of the Biblical story of Jonah, this book has at its heart the importance of community. I’m not the greatest fiction reader in the world, but I pretty much read this in one weekend and found it uplifting and heart-warming. And that’s not something you can often say about the Apocalypse.
