The Cruise of the Nona

£7.99

Product description

1925, first edition. Hilaire Belloc was a French English writer, 1870 - 1953.
No-one who now reads "The Cruise of the Nona" for the first time will respond to it without some sense of shock. Most people will come to it because of its fugitive reputation as a sea classic, an enchanting story of a voyage in a small boat down the Irish Sea and up the English Channel, a book full of idyllic solitude, of sunsets, storms, oily calms, wet sleeping bags, tide races, tangled ropes and the rest of it. Such readers if they skip judiciously, will manage to find what they want, but they won't be prepared for what "The cruise of the Nona" actually is, an extraordinary and disturbing can of worms and glory. 
Fair condition, no dust jacket. Clean, some pencil marks.
