Today is the m'f'in' day.
Calling all otter lovers, nature lovers, or just plain lovers of luxurious prose. Today a bunch of us will begin reading and discussing "Tarka the Otter" by Henry Williamson.

Written in a poetic yet accessible style, "Tarka the Otter" follows the birth, life, and inevitable death of the titular character.

This is the official thread for "Tarka," with helpful links and discussion to follow.
Happy reading, /lit/.

Beautiful cover. And the whole novel is about the life of an otter? Sounds based.

Is Tarka male? If so I will look into this book.

Tarka is male. Why is that outcome determinative for you, out of curiosity?

I have vowed to disregard women, regardless of the species.
