The Ocean: A Novel

'“[The Ocean] has resounding spiritual implications. . . . More than just an adventure tale, the novel traces the shaky path of human survival.” —Publishers Weekly   “There are some writers who seem to have a private path into people’s souls. They lead you there through unfamiliar streets . . . And yet, when you have arrived, there is no question that you are there . . . James Hanley is such a writer.” —The New York Times   “[Hanley was] not British, not American, not South African, not Ebury Street, not Chicago. Just language like a good clean cyclone.” —William Faulkner   “A modernist master.” —Kirkus Reviews   “[Hanley is] a novelist of distinction and originality.” —E. M. Forster   “[Hanley’s] language, intense and compassionate as his world is diseased and vicious, reveals an intense understanding of the cesspool of human nature and the capacity for good and bad, even at once.” —The List (Edinburgh)   “[Hanley was the creator of] some of the most serious and emotionally demanding novels in our language this century.” —The Sunday Correspondent   “Hanley is one of the most able and influential writers in the English language.” —The Boston Globe   “[Hanley] is that rarity of rarities: a genuine original.” —The New York Times Book Review   “[Hanley] is one of the most consistently praised and least-known novelists in the English-speaking world.” —Time'
