AUTHOR

McPhee, John

SUMMARY

"By the time...we have debarked, we have come to know the crewmen and the routine aboard a modern cargo ship....Style is what Mr. McPhee is loaded down to the Plimsoll marks in: felicitous phrases, keen observation, the knack of unloading a cargo of information without hitting the reader on the head with a jumbo boom....[It] puts one in mind of a most articulate old sea dog who has swallowed the anchor and sits on a waterfront bollard telling his lubberly acquaintances about what happens out there, just on the other side of the horizon."McPhee, John is the author of 'Looking for a Ship', published 1991 under ISBN 9780374523190 and ISBN 0374523193.
