The Book of Eels by Patrik Svensson

Remarkably little is known about the European eel, so little in fact that modern science still asks:  Where do they come from?  What are they?  Are they fish or something else altogether?  Drawing on a wealth of research, Svensson blends memoir and nature writing in pursuit of understanding the mysterious animal, and in turn the human condition.
