The Shark God

type
  • Book
genre

Like his great-grandfather, a Victorian missionary, Charles Montgomery heads to Melanesia, where the smashup of Christianity and indigenous beliefs has produced a ”psychospiritual Disneyland.”

Fantasy Island?
He goes diving with a self-proclaimed ”shark caller.”

Upshot
Beautifully detailed but occasionally digressive, The Shark God offers a heady blend of history, memoir, and anthropology.
