'This is a bold and fascinating mystery novel of ideas. John David Morley enfolds science and human loss with great fictional cunning' Ian McEwan on The Book of Opposites '[A] splendid book' Kazuo Ishiguro on Pictures from the Water Trade 'Exquisite ...There is beauty in strange places in Morley's haunting scheme' Sunday Telegraph on Journey to the End of the Whale 'A remarkable feat of imagination and sheer narrative energy' Frank Kermode on Passage 'A marvellous and original work of fiction' Melvyn Bragg on Journey to the End of the Whale Spanning the decades from World War II to the Yugoslav conflict, Ella Morris is the story of a remarkable woman, and of the toll history takes on individual lives. Born in Berlin on the eve of Hitler's rise to power, Ella Andrzejewski escapes Soviet-occupied Europe and finds a safe haven in England. Here, she marries George Morris, but subsequently falls in love with Claude de Marsay, a French student ten years her junior. The intrusion of Claude upsets the balance of the Morris household, while the effects of Ella's traumatic past continue to be felt. As the decades pass and Europe lurches towards another conflict, Ella's children and grandchildren struggle to find their peace in a continent still reverberating with the echoes of war.
