In the summer of 2002, Shannon Leone Fowler was backpacking with her fiancé Sean in Thailand. The couple were planning to return home after their excursion to the island of Koh Pha Ngan but their plans were devastated when a box jellyfish – the most venomous animal in the world – wrapped itself around Sean’s legs, stinging and killing him in minutes. Rejecting the Thai authorities‘ attempt to label Sean’s death as ‚drunk drowning‘, Shannon accompanied his body home to his stunned family – a family to which she suddenly no longer belonged. Shattered, untethered and alone, Shannon set out on a journey to make sense of her loss.
Shannon Leone Fowler ist eine Meeresbiologin aus Kalifornien, die jetzt in London lebt. „This is a beautiful book, deep with love and loss and being in the world. Fowler’s attention to detail brings us with her as she experiences the terrible circumstances of her fiance’s death and her attempts to re-balance herself in the wider, not always safe, world. Love and loss and friendship all rendered in language rich with emotion and description.“ (Leserin) (47 Rezensionen / 4,9 Sterne), 305 Seiten noch günstig?
