prize-winning blend of history and memoir journeys to the islands
of the South Pacific to explore the bond between faith and magic,
the bizarre influence of Western Culture and the eerie persistence
of the spirit world.
Shark God's Canadian edition won The Charles Taylor Prize, the country's
richest non-fiction award, and resounding praise from some of the
world's most admired non-fiction writers, including Simon Winchester,
David Rakoff, Wade Davis and Ryszard Kapuscinski. The Shark God
was released in the US and the UK in July, 2006, to continued acclaim.
Shark God, a travel story as dark and twisted as one might ever
wish to hear … reaches a superb climax with some apocalyptically
page-turning scenes," writes Kevin Rushby in The Guardian.
