Do you ever really know your father?

Like many sons, William Bloom never really knew his father. Edward told him stories too incredible to believe about his exploits as a younger man, but any attempt to find out serious truths have been met with laughter and brush-offs. And that never mattered. But now Edward is dying, suddenly it matters a great deal.

So William sets out to tell his father's story, as he imagines it. He tames a giant, is dragged by an enormous fish through a lake and escapes a purgatory of lost dreams. Through legends and myths, William makes Edward into a true Big Fish.

The much beloved book by Daniel Wallace is soon to be a Christmas musical at The Other Palace in London.

Praise for Big Fish:


'Both comic and poignant' New York Times
