The Weaver Fish

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A captivating zoological, mathematical, technological, grammatical, architectural, aeronautical literary thriller - unlike anything you’ve read before. When Edvard Tøssentern, the missing author of studies of the mysterious flesh-eating weaver fish, staggers in from a remote swamp, his colleagues at the research station on the island of Ferendes are overjoyed. But Edvard’s discovery about a rare giant bird throws them all into the path of a dangerous international crime ring. Part-thriller, part-literary and mathematical puzzle, this unique, bold and playful debut engages the reader in an exhilarating game, challenging everything we know - or think we know - about language, morality and truth.

From Publishers Weekly

25 April 2016 – Australian anesthetist Edeson's enigmatic debut opens with an edited version of an address delivered to a Cambridge University society regarding the piranha-like fish of the title, for which there are more "words than reported sightings." Chapter two dwells on an unusually designed London building, from a window of which was found hanging in 1963 the dead body of a Soviet Embassy attach . Chapter three includes portions of an interview from the magazine Aviation Reviews with aeronautical engineer Walter Reckles, the author of a controversial book on surviving a midair collision, which maintains that passengers could pilot "aircraft fragments, particularly a wing, safely back to Earth." Eventually, something of a focus emerges concerning the disappearance of the Norwegian-British logician, linguist and dream theorist Edvard T ssentern in a research balloon over the South China Sea. Edeson leavens this whimsical academic send-up with endnotes full of fictional mathematical equations, but readers will struggle to figure out how everything connects.
