Marine biologist Nate Quinn is in love with the majestic ocean-dwelling behemoths who have been singing their haunting song for twenty million years. But why do the humpback whales sing? That's the question that has Nate and his crew filming, charting, and recording every whale that crosses their path. Until one day when a whale lifts its tail to display a message spelled out in foot-high letters: Bite Me.... No one has ever seen such a thing; not Nate's longtime partner, not world-renowned photographer Clay Demodocus, not their saucy young research assistant, Amy, not even spliff-puffing white-boy Rastaman, Kona. And when the film returns from the lab missing the crucial tail shot--and their research facility is trashed--Nate realizes that something very fishy is going on. It only gets weirder when a call comes in from Nate's big-bucks benefactor, saying that a whale has phoned her, asking for a hot pastrami and Swiss on rye. Suddenly the answer to the question that has driven Nate throughout his adult life is within reach. And it's not what anyone would think.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Readers new to the work of Christopher Moore will want to know…where has this guy been hiding? (Answer: In plain sight, since he has a devoted cult following.)…He writes laid-back fables straight out of Margaritaville, on the cusp of humor and science fiction.” New York Times
“Moore’s career has plainly been one of scaling new peaks; with  [Fluke] he might just have outdone himself…If the ghost of Jules Verne had conspired with Rudy Rucker and Tom Robbins to produce a novel, Fluke might very well make them hang their heads in defeat…This novel is all ambergris, no blubber.” Washington Post Book World
“You’re not likely to stumble across another book like [Fluke]…and it contains more than its fair share of goofy fun…definitely the perfect book for a day at the beach.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Moore is endlessly inventive…This cetacean picaresque is no fluke—it is a sure winner.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
