Does the ocean merely connect us or does it correspond with our dispatches? Silent Whale Letters is a joint meditation on the transformative potential of a note, a voice, carried from saltwater into the archive. Finer and Mascini find a beautiful buoyancy in discussing hope, distress, dilute splendour and intense attachment. This is a book about whales, yes, but it travels further still, into questions of intimacy and ecology.
A scintillating read.

— Rebecca Giggs, Author of Fathoms: The World in the Whale
In the space between these letters, I find a place for myself in the movement of the great silent or not-so-silent whale.
Here is an ode to the liquid measure of listening, of carrying silence; letters finding each other through currents of migrating memories, shape shifting words, fluid thoughts, held with the same expansiveness as the silent whale. This exchange of only years feels like an ancient journey in feeling.
I’m left pining for another letter.

— Salma Tuqan, Director of Nottingham Contemporary
