Calm at Sunset, Calm at Dawn by Paul Watkins
- Price: £9.99 Add to Basket
The coast of New England: beautiful but savage, where storms can whip up out of nowhere, and the wrecks can wash up on the beach. James Pfeiffer, a young collage dropout, is baptised into the grueling world of the trawler boats, where he discovers the thrill and terror of life at sea.
Paul Watkins's gripping novel tells the brutal story of life on the trawlers, the danger, the comradeship and the secrets buried deep beneath the surface.
'Watkins combines the open-eyed wonder of a boy being baptised into a man's maritime world ... with the sea-hunter's mysticism of Moby Dick' - Observer.
