Among the very best memoirs about a resilient Boston maritime family of modest means during the depression era and World War II who overcame many obstacles to achieve amazing accomplishments on land and at sea. Very well-written and edited

QUe decir es muy Borgeano, lo que para mi es un gran elogio. El autor, también escritor y poeta escribe, recuerda y ficciona su encuentro con Borges a principio de los 70 en Escocia, con quien hace un viaje iniciático por las Highlands escocesas. Desde Stirling, Culloden y el lago Ness, da pie para que juegue con un Borges muy Borgeano . recomendable

Not a bookclub book, but a gift from my sister. I enjoyed the book and she did too. I think it would be a good book club book because of the lives of Leo Tolstoy and his wife.

You will enjoy this book if...
You believe that Moby-Dick is one of the great American novels.
You had an American Lit professor who made the book come alive for you. You are a writer who alternates between believing your own genius and falling into the depths that everyone is better than you.
You love a good adventure on the high seas.
You ever had an unrequited love that affected you deeply.
You had to put aside your Art to take a job in the real-world to pay real bills.
You wish you could sit at a table with Melville, Hawthorne or Whitman and debate Emerson.
You like a good tragedy.
You have worked in the publishing industry.

You will not enjoy this book if...
Moby-who? (if so, then go out and take an American Lit class, or see if there is a free podcast on iTunes)
Herman Mel-who? (he isn't the most likeable of people, so you really do have to have read Moby-Dick or other works to appreciate him)
You are looking for a light-hearted book or a romance
