Product description

It does contain poems about real sea journeys, notably up the coast of Norway, but also about more nebulous and figurative voyages like, for example, the journeys of those equivocal adventurers Murat Reis and Tristan Jones from one identity to another, and that of Adwaitya the tortoise through several lifetimes of men . Not to mention the longest journey of all, that which the ghost of Josephine makes from death back to life in the mind of her bereaved father.

Review quote

"Pugh makes memorable documentaries of life's surprises and ironies, of human folly . . . juggling ideas and language, but educating us too. Thoroughly recommended." --"London Review Magazine"
