Sea as Mirror/Williams, Tess/Paper/0732270804/S055-E1
On an island marina off the Florida coast, Elizabeth works to communicate with a killer whale. No one else has ever had an opportunity like this - no whale has ever voluntarily come in from the wild before. Then one day the whale speaks.
But can humans accept this urgent approach from another species? Or will the whale be dismissed as a political stunt?
Beyond the marine, nuclear and biological disaster loom. Inside it, Elizabeth's loyalties are stretched to breaking point as she clashes with management, fights to continue her work and fights to understand why the whale has made this sacrifice. And why now?
Inspired by a childhood dream, she uses advanced technology to overcome the limits of language and rediscovers an ancient kinship between land and sea.
Through the twin narratives of whales and humans, Tess Williams charts a course towards the last frontier: inter-species communication. Poetic, passionate and provocative, Sea as Mirror offers a challenging view of a new kind of future.
