NZ Booklovers reviews The Lobster’s Tale


‘The Lobster’s Tale by Chris Price and Bruce Foster is less of a story or narrative and more of a beautiful exploration of life, love, and physiology. Focusing on the eponymous lobster, the writers look closely at the concepts of ambition and learning. It is beautifully crafted with a very poetic writing style that can take a little getting used to when first encountered.

‘As a book, the presentation is beautiful. The binding alone is eye-catching but, when paired with the stunning images within the book, the item as a whole becomes more a piece of art than a text. Across the bottom of the pages runs a single line of poetic text. When read in isolation the poem (of sorts) is really quite remarkable.’
