"Gritty...Grimey...Syrup-soaked and Jelly-filled. A punctured and oozing tale of true love, abuse, gluttony and unbelievable revenge, BERMETHA AND THE WHALE is the word-for-word transcription of an audio recording from an incarcerated man in 1980's Ohio. No price is too high to pay to be free from "The Whale," the world's most horrific individual.
A unique piece of American literary fiction. A short story in magical realism. A work by Beard Bates."
