When a whale beaches itself on the shore of the remote coastal town of Paradise Deep, the last thing any of the townspeople expect to find inside it is a man, silent and reeking of fish, but remarkably alive. The discovery of this mysterious person, soon christened Judah, sets the town scrambling for answers as its most prominent citizens weigh in on whether he is man or beast, blessing or curse, miracle or demon.--From book jacket
Sweetland : a novel by Michael Crummey( Book )
20 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Polish and held by 1,080 libraries worldwide
The scarcely populated town of Sweetland rests on the shore of a remote Canadian island. Its slow decline finally reaches a head when the mainland government offers each islander a generous resettlement package - the sole stipulation being that everyone must leave. Moses Sweetland, the stubborn, enigmatic old man whose ancestors founded the village, is the only islander to refuse to accept their deal. As he watches his neighbours abandon the island, he recalls the town's rugged history and its eccentric cast of characters. Evoking The Shipping News, Michael Crummey - one of Canada's finest novelists - conjures up the mythical, sublime world of Moses Sweetland's past amid a storm- battered landscape haunted by local lore. Crummey masterfully weaves together past and present, creating in Sweetland a spectacular portrait of one man's battle to survive as his environment vanishes around him
