    In striving to enrich the lives of all readers, TeachingBooks supports the First Amendment and celebrates the right to read. The beginning is a brilliant contemporary reworking of the tale but it falls apart when things warp and shift aboard The Porpoise. Such a shame. It just turns into a straight narration of Pericles’ tale for the majority of the book (yawn) with some curious interludes featuring Shakespeare.

"Porpoise Song (Theme from Head)" is a song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King and performed by pop/rock quartet The Monkees on their album Head. The song was commissioned by Bob Rafelson, the director and producer of the film Head. The song was released as a single in , and reached No. 62 on the Billboard Hot The single version Format: 7".

      The book tells the story of powerful women, and how they exact that power — even in ways readers don’t see immediately. Even though Haddon’s book can be seen as a retelling of Pericles, The Prince of Tyre, for me it is not about Pericles. It’s about Angelica, Chloe, Marina and the women. The Porpoise pounds away so consistently a pummel of literary excellence I found myself repeatedly checking the cover, making sure the book was written by a human and not an AI designed to compose the best novel this side of the 20th century to weave it all together with the art of a master storyteller.
