Product description

Review

Her report is a marvel of information, insight and intelligence laced with humour, humanity and high spirits. --The Times

The author deserves considerable praise. First, for wangling passage on the kind of ship that rarely welcomes outsiders; second, for coaxing several enlightening interviews out of the ship's crew; and, third, for writing with such gusto and elegance. --Geographical Magazine

Fascinating... this is essential reading for anyone curious about the complex systems behind our convenient modern world. --Hythe Herald

'Absorbing, engrossing, there are moments when the pulse genuinely quickens. Just what you'll want to read after seeing Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips and Robert Redford in All is Lost' --Scotsman

'Deep Sea and Foreign Going is an ethnographic travelogue that is as fascinating and it is troublingly insightful. This is a remarkable work of embedded reportage - hair-raising, witty, compassionate - that deserves to be read by anyone interested in the cartographies of the contemporary world' --Guardian

'Absorbing, engrossing, there are moments when the pulse genuinely quickens. Just what you'll want to read after seeing Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips and Robert Redford in All is Lost' --Scotsman

'Absorbing' **** --Irish Independent

'Absorbing, engrossing, there are moments when the pulse genuinely quickens. Just what you'll want to read after seeing Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips and Robert Redford in All is Lost' --Scotsman

'A work of great insight... Rose George has a gift for research' --Paperback review, Irish Times

'Absorbing, engrossing, there are moments when the pulse genuinely quickens. Just what you'll want to read after seeing Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips and Robert Redford in All is Lost' --Scotsman
