About this title


There are literally hundreds - if not thousands - of academic works written about dolphins. This is certainly not one of them, for within these pages dwells a graphic story of the plight of the commercial dolphin. The Perfect Pair: Shards from the Mirror is the final book in 'The Perfect Pair Dolphin Trilogy' and provides a damning expose of the captive cetacean industry. The first book in the trilogy, The Perfect Pair: The Enchanted Mirror (Matador, 2012), is now a core text for the BA(Hons) English and Creative Writing course at the University of Salford, and won the Bronze Award in the Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards 2013. A chapter also won first prize in a prestigious literary competition held by the Manchester Evening News, and celebrity reviewers are already describing this final book as 'a masterpiece'. The Perfect Pair: Shards from the Mirror will appeal to those with an interest in the realities of animal training. Like Gabriela Cowperthwaite's influential 2013 documentary Blackfish, this story will change people's perception of captive dolphins forever.

About the Author:

When David C. Holroyd was 17, a leading leisure company employed him as a dolphin presenter. At the pinnacle of his career, he left the dolphin industry, vowing never to return. He now works part-time as a writer, artist and lecturer and has published two books, the award-winning The Perfect Pair: The Enchanted Mirror (Matador, 2012) and The Perfect Pair: The Mirror Cracks (Matador, 2014), with his sister Tracy. Tracy J. Holroyd has worked largely as an author and lecturer, as well as writing short stories and articles for several national children's/teen magazines. She has written two children's books, Children's History of Manchester (Hometown World, 2010) and Children's History of Lancashire (Hometown World, 2011).
