New York, NY: Ticknor & Fields, 1989. New York, NY, Ticknor & Fields, 1989. First edition. 8vo. Dark blue quarter cloth over dark blue boards with silver lettering embossed on spine, 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. Fine in a near fine dust jacket, protected by a mylar cover.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
