Críticas ""I think Sea Change is a magnificent addition to the literature of small-boating adventuring.""--Jonathan Raban, author of Badlands""Sea Change is many things: adventure tale, sailing memoir, confession. What holds it together is the author's fine ear for language and rhythms of the sea.""--The Seattle TimesNichols is marvelous at describing the feelings of awe and loneliness that the sea inspires... In his understated telling of the story, he never seeks your sympathy. He just breaks your heart.--The New York Review Of BooksA heartbreaking and harrowing sea tale... Nichols has (written) something wonderful.--Los Angeles Times Reseña del editor Many people go down to the sea in ships, but few write as movingly of the experience as Peter Nichols does in this enthralling meditation on the wonders of sailing, the mystery of the sea, and the ebb and flow of love.With only a sextant, his instincts as a seasoned sailor, and a boat filled with memories of his floundering marriage, Nichols sets out alone from England headed toward Maine, where he plans to sell his beloved, twenty-seven-foot, engineless boat, Toad. Halfway across the ocean, his boat springs a leak and his voyage becomes a desperate struggle to survive. Filled with clear, luminous prose, Sea Change is a classic tale of a man struggling to come to terms with his reckless spirit, his highest hopes, and his broken dreams. Ver Descripción del producto
