Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An unforgettable woman proves that a persons eccentricities can also be her greatest gifts.

When Isabelle Nieto comes to Mexico to take over the family business, a failing tuna cannery on the coast, she finds a wild young girl wandering the beaches near her family's home. So begins a miraculous journey for autistic savant Karen Nieto, who finds freedom not only in the love and patient instruction of her aunt Isabelle, but eventually at the bottom of the ocean swimming among the creatures of the sea. Her gifts with animals are finally put to good use at the family's fishery, and her plan to revolutionize the company is brilliant: Consolation Tuna will become the first humane tuna fishery on the planet. Greenpeace approves and fame and fortune follow, and Karen is swept on a global journey that defies even her wildest expectations. As intimate as it is profound, as clear-eyed as it is warmhearted, Sabina Berman's Me, Who Dove into the Heart of the World plunges us to inspiring depths, and we resurface with a new wonder for our world — and for all the creatures living in it.
