I love this book - a masterpiece from hell
A pulse-quickening piece of fiction . . . trawlers combine epic drama with the baroque intensity of men crammed together . . . a terrifying depiction of peril at sea
This slim book vividly captures the the drama and terror of a crisis at sea.
Gripping and exciting.
This gripping novel is as good at describing the magnificent seascapes and the unforgiving elements as it is at examining the inner lives of the besieged crew, toiling ceaselessly against implacable nature.
