Few write with as much passion and fascination about the sea as British author Philip Hoare, who swims in the ocean every day, regardless of the season. His hugely acclaimed Leviathan, or the Whale won the Samuel Johnson Prize and introduced us to Hoare’s eclectic style of biography, literary criticism, social history and nature writing, which carried through to The Sea Inside. His latest book, RisingTideFallingStar, includes ‘fantastical stories of drowned poets, eccentric artists and magical animals, slipping between species and gender, all bound by the profound ocean’. Philip chats with Kim Hill in a not-to-missed conversation.
