Author: A Beached Whale (trans. Dave Lenski)
Publisher: University Press of Kansas
Length: 113 pages / 124 minutes
This book is actually the interpretation of a whale’s dying calls as it lay on a Long Island beach with an obstructed blowhole. Incorporated into the book’s spine is an audio recording of the actual whale-song, while the text of the book itself is the exhaustive, heart-wrenching, largely repetitive interpretation into English.
