From the Publisher
Anne Thwaite: "Immensely readable and extremely clever, Seaside Pleasures is a remarkable novel .. the blend of past and present, fact and fiction, is both curious and compelling."
Matt Ridley: " A very fine piece of writing that, uniqely among modern novels, makes real use of science rather than wearing science on its sleeve. Tremendously good plot, story and narrative style, fascinating history and even better science - a true two-culture achievement."
North Devon Journal: ".. a thoughtful compelling story, a very human account. The book is a rockpool itself, concealing seaside secrets as well as pleasures deep beneath the surface."
