About this product
- DescriptionExcerpts from Captains All The Golden Boy: That's what they are calling (him) w. He ... sneered. I am a carpenter, just like Jesus was a carpenter. Whatever they need ... I build it. Sometimes it's a chapel! He lowered his pitch ... Sometimes it's a scaffold. A searchlight swept over the splintered wood and mangled pipes, and then the light shined ... By Jove, there he is ... ------------------- Thirsting for freedom, Jeff ventures over sea and land until, semi-conscious upon the vast darkness of a foggy sea, he clings to a piece of flotsam, the remains of some sea disaster. He has entered a new dimension in which gods, demons and ghosts take on an eerie reality. Then the unexpected happens: He sees Claire swimming along at the bottom of the ocean, her hair flowing, her arms beckoning, her legs treading water gracefully. -------------------------- What other authors wrote about this book: The start is a wonderful stream of consciousness, the kind we used to have from Proust all the way to Kerouac, and which for some unclear reason to me, we longer get. On the one hand, you have the moment by moment perceptions, where each moment is a dangling act promising the next to have the same urgency as the previous; then you have the journalistic style.... just telling it like it is.... finally you have the stream of consciousness that keep popping up.... like a Halloween ghost. ------------------------ 'The Final Cruise' reminds me a little of Richard Henry Dana's book 'Two Years Before the Mast.' There is a place on the coast of southern California, near San Diego called Dana Point where, in the book, he transported cow hides from the missions, by rappelling down a cliff with ropes. The cliff is still there today. You also seem to capture the spirit of Dana's travels across the world, with all it's ups and downs, especially never getting eugh sleep since there's always a storm that needs to be fought against and the sails always needs to be patched.
