A Perfect Voyage,
By A Customer
This review is from: Passage to Juneau: A Sea and Its Meanings (Paperback)
I hugely enjoyed this book. Raban's sparkling prose and his knowledge and affinity for the sea are awesome. The Northwest is very much Raban's territory, just as California was for Robert Louis Stevenson - another brilliant British-born writer. There are some fascinating similarities between these two intriguing men :both dazzle with wit, erudition, intelligence and curiosity. Raban's 'take' on the American way of life never fails to stimulate and enrich the reader's mind; and I look forward to his next book. For my money, Raban, Amis, McEwan and Rushdie are the most interesting writers around today.
