Door in Dark Water is exactly that – a vivid portal into a way of life that is nearby but for all practical purposes invisible. I knew that fishing is a difficult way to make a living, but I was still struck by the myriad ways in which the rigors present themselves: physical demands, unpredictable income, and genuine dangers, counter-balanced by moments of exhilaration from the adrenaline of hand-to-hand combat with the forces of nature.
The book provides an absorbing account of the challenges, the actual fishing techniques involved, and the colorful personalities of the people who live this life, along with the author's own improbable journey through it.
I appreciate that the author keeps to a straight narrative. He shares his own emotions but there is little interpretation of others’, and no attempt to glorify or demonize any character, the lifestyle or the industry. As a result the characters and situations are revealed very directly, and as a reader I am free to experience my own reactions.
