"This towering story of a man pitting himself against the sea, society and himself...and the portrait of two men and a powerful woman they both love" Tan boards with navy backstrip have gilt lettering, uncut pages are clean, no marks, binding is tight, Endflaps pages have South Atlantic Ocean map. Glossy, pictoral jacket has folds at front and back flaps, small creases at edges and minor shelfwear,scratches on front.

In this towering story about a man pitting himself against the sea, against society, and against himself, Robert Stone again demonstrates that he is "one of the most impressive novelists of his generation" (New York Review of Books). Inviting comparison with the great sea novels of Conrad, Melville, and Hemingway, Outerbridge Reach is also the portrait of two men and the powerful, unforgettable woman they both love - and for whom they are both ready, in their very different ways, to stake everything. As the San Francisco Chronicle said, "Robert Stone asks questions of our time few writers could imagine and answers them in narratives few readers will ever quite forget."
