New York, NY: Houghton Mifflin, 1989. New York, Houghton-Mifflin, 1989. First edition. 8vo. Blue quarter cloth over blue boards with silver lettering embossed on spine, textured maroon endpapers, 275 pp. This book tells the story of James Pfeiffer's twentieth year, a year of rebellion, initiation, and change. In staccato prose as dazzling as sun on water, it vividly captures the maritime life in all its rank immediacy and elemental mystery. Moving, violent, at times ferociously funny, this superb novel is an absolutely fresh addition to the venerable tradition of tales of the sea and the men who work its generous but unforgiving depth. New in a new dust jacket, protected by a mylar cover.. First Edition. Quarter Cloth. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
