KIRKUS REVIEW

A distinctive story of a voyage and its men begins when the author, in Marseilles, finds his way to a Norwegian tramp steamer, and a two weeks tour turns into a climactic one of many months. Their route takes them to the West African coast and, as the relationships of the men develop, there is a Conrad-like analysis that illumines the best and the worst in them. Serious and brutal, this gears itself to readers who are ready for it.
