Description

Classic adventure stories by Joseph Conrad, Rudyard Kipling, Stephen Crane, Robert Louis Stevenson and Jack London mix with marvellously imaginative tales by Isak Dinesen, Patricia Highsmith and J. G. Ballard. Robert Olen Butler explores the memories of a Titanic victim who has become part of the sea that swallowed him; Ray Bradbury’s ‘The Fog Horn’ summons something primeval and lonely from the ocean depths; John Updike’s lovers retrace the route of Homer’s Odyssey on a cruise ship. From Edgar Allan Poe’s dramatic ‘A Descent into the Maelstrom’ to Ernest Hemingway’s chilling ‘After the Storm’, the stories here are as wide-ranging and entrancing as the sea itself.
