Reviews

James B. Stewart

author of "Heart of a Soldier"

To the ranks of seafaring literature, we may gratefully add "The Colombo Bay," an engrossing account by Richard Pollak of his global circumnavigation on a modern container ship. And to the traditional perils of sea crossings -- piracy, tropical storms, running aground -- we may now add global terrorism. Those who venture with Pollak on this remarkable journey will gain a new appreciation for the importance of the world's sea lanes, and the people and ships that populate them.

Steven Brill

author of "After"

Don't think you want to read a book about shipping? Well, how about a Jules Verne-like tale of a journey across the world that begins two days after September 11 and makes issues like globalization, international trade, and port security come alive in a deeply personal, poignant narrative crafted by a truly gifted writer? You will be pulled along in the wake of the "Colombo Bay". And you'll savor the trip.
