Big Fish: a Novel of Mythic Proportions

by Daniel Wallace

A thought provoking, moving, amusing and intimate portrait of paternal and filial love. I doubt that the film will match up to everyone’s expectations, read it first. A book for men who would like to know their fathers better.

Extract

So he was not a good candidate for death; it made being at home even worse. He tried to make the best of it in the beginning by making long-distance calls to people in strange places all around the world, but soon he became too sick to do even that. He became just a man, a man without a job, without a story to tell, a man, I realized, I didn’t know.
