I went on a binge of reading about eels. I’m writhing with glee. Eel imagery has haunted me for some time and finally I’m learning something about them. There was James Prosek’s Eels: An Exploration, from New Zealand to the Sargasso, of the World’s Most Mysterious Fish, and Patrik Svensson’s The Book of Eels, which is actually in translation. I liked them both, immensely. I hope to find another book about eels in the future.
