Product Details

About the Author

James Hamilton-Paterson lives and works in Italy. He is the author of several novels, including Loving Monsters and Gerontius, winner of the Whitbread Best First Novel Award in 1989, a collection of essays dedicated to the lost grandeur of the sea entitled Seven Tenths, and several non-fiction books including America's Boy, a study of Ferdinand Marcos and the Philippines. He is also the author of two books of poetry and a regular contributor to Granta.


"The kind of book that, were he alive now, Shelley might have written." -Charles Sprawson "Hamilton-Paterson's hallucinogenic narrative brings to mind both Coleridge and Borges." - Cristopher Hirst "Personal, quirky, scientific, and poetical by turns-The Songlines of the sea." -Daily Telegraph (UK) "[Hamilton-Paterson] logs the destruction of the last wilderness and its place in the imagination with the intense vision of an angry Thoreau." -Observer (UK) "Should be required reading for the decision makers of every maritime nation." - The New York Times Book Review "Under the sparkle and often superb imagery lie austere Conradian depths." - Sunday Telegraph (UK) "Not since Rachel Carson have I heard such eloquence, such passion for the sea and everything it means to us." -The New York Review of Books
