This is a book about a fish called the snoek, and about the people of the West Coast of South Africa. It is also about language, an albino bulbul, mental health, and ... the meaning of life. The snoek (thyrsites atun) is a fierce pelagic predator that inhabits the cold coastal waters of the West Coast of South Africa. It eats little fishes and has been doing so for millions of years. We eat snoek.
