Leviathan or, the whale: Philip Hoare

8pm, Friday 4 November

This personal, historical and biographical journey won the 2009 Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction. More than the story of the whale, more than an investigation into dark, shadowy creatures in the depths, it is also the story of his and our own obsessions. Philip Hoare is the author of five other works of non-fiction: His latest book, The Sea Inside, was published 2014. He is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Southampton, and Leverhulme Artist-in-residence at The Marine Institute, Plymouth University, which awarded him an honorary doctorate in 2011.
