Praise for Mark Kurlansky

"Every once in a while a writer of particular skill takes a fresh, seemingly improbable idea and turns out a book of pure delight." -- David McCullough

"Fascinating stuff . . . [Kurlansky] has a keen eye for odd facts and natural detail." -The Wall Street Journal

"Kurlansky continues to prove himself remarkably adept at taking a most unlikely candidate and telling its tale with epic grandeur." -Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Brilliant... Journalistic skills might be part of a writer's survival kit, but they infrequently prove to be the foundation for literary success, as they have here. .... Kurlansky has a wonderful ear for the syntax and rhythm of the vernacular... For all the seriousness of Kurlansky's cultural entanglements, it is nevertheless a delight to experience his sophisticated sense of play and, at times, his outright wicked sense of humor." -The New York Times Book Review
