A Whale Watcher's Guide to the Apocalypse
- Lewis Evans
A Whale Watcher’s Guide to the Apocalypse recounts one man’s endeavour to regain control of his dreary life by setting out for a new “frontier.” What starts as an innocent, lager-fuelled quest for change quickly spirals out of control, and our “frontiersman” finds himself doggedly pursued by a ruthless bounty hunter. With only nature, raccoons and whales as his allies, our hero’s escape from his pursuer recklessly brings on the advent of a new apocalypse. This slapstick collection of maxims on life’s thrills and dismal shortcomings is a classic Bildungsroman, couched in contemporary parody and satire.
