The Bookman's Tale

'“The publisher of a small Southern press sails on a freighter to a Caribbean island in pursuit of a woman he hasn’t seen in almost 30 years. As he wonders how his odyssey will end, he listens to various passengers relate, a la Chaucer, their ‘Tales,’ some with no apparent ending, but all of them about how people lie to others and themselves. Temptingly enigmatic, this brief novel offers stylish, witty observations, with not a word wasted, luring the reader through a seamless narrative toward a stunning climax.” —Publishers Weekly  '
