The Highest Tide, Jim Lynch, introduction

Raincoast Books :: podcasts :: show

Summary: Raincoast Books is proud to present a special podcast with Jim Lynch, author of The Highest Tide. The Highest Tide tells the story of thirteen-year-old Miles O’Malley who lives on Puget Sound and knows everything there is to know about the sea and its creatures. When he becomes the first person to sight a live giant squid he is hailed as some sort of prophet. The media descend and everyone wants to hear what Miles has to say. But Miles is just a self-described “increasingly horny, speed-reading thirteen-year-old insomniac” who navigates the mysterious world of adults as the strange events continue over the summer, culminating in the highest tide in 100 years. This is a clip from the forth-coming podcast. Jim's podcast was created in Vancouver during the Vancouver International Writers and Readers Festival.  Find out more about Jim' book at  For more information about Raincoast books please visit
