DESCRIPTION:

Peter Hunter joins the SS Circe, an old cargo boat, and attempts to plunge himself into the harsh realities of life at sea.

Unhappy with himself and his identity he finds it hard to fit in with the rest of the crew.

But when he finds himself locked up after a drunken accident he befriends Stores, the aging alcoholic engine-room storekeeper.

And when Den the ‘leader’ of the men on board becomes aggressive he finds himself forced, almost against his will, to defend the victimised steward, Primrose.

As the ship follows its apparently random course around the globe, the motivations and destinies of the crew members are gradually revealed.

Against a background of waterfront dives, drunken brawls and the squalid conditions of life on board, Peter, too, finds that he is committed to work out his own survival in the same terms as those around him.

But can he remain true to what he has discovered of his own nature?

‘Sea Change’ is a moving and philosophical work of fiction, perfect for fans of Joseph Conrad and William Boyd.

Praise for Paul…
