The novel tells of ships wrecked and blown up in wars, of places of terror and violence that continue to lure each generation with their cannibals, shrunken heads, prophetic dreams, forbidden passions, cowards, heroes, tragedies, and miraculous survivals. The result is a brilliant seafaring novel, a gripping saga encompassing industrial growth, the years of expansion and exploration, the crucible of the first half of the 20th century, and, most of all, the sea.
Hailed in Europe as an instant classic, We, the Drowned, spanning four generations, two world wars, and a hundred years, is an epic tale of adventure, ruthlessness, and passion destined to take its place among the greatest seafaring literature.

We, the Drowned
If you could sum up We, the Drowned in three words, what would they be?
Sailing, Marstal, Sailing
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Cut out the middle, limited sections on Albert-I didn't like him nearly as much as the author.
What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?
It was fine. Nothing stands out.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
The beginning is very good, so is the final third to a lesser extent. The middle was tough to get through for me.
