1965. 191 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket, both in Very Good condition. DJ has two small tears, one near the top of the spine, and the other at the bottom of the spine. Touching, brutal, stunningly alive, the story of Forbush is at once a taut adventure tale, a lyrical love story, and a grim, slowly wrought affirmation of life. Forbush is a young New Zealand biologist who volunteers to live alone in an Antarctic hut for five months in order to record, day by day, the habits of a dying colony of penguins. Unpretentious, simple, richly evocative, Forbush and the Penguins is to be read and re-read. It is a novel of astonishing power.
