Product description


"The Shoreline and the Sea is captivating in its strangeness and beauty. Always mysterious, always challenging but never frustrating. Instead it has a captivating charm which lures you into the story and pulls you around in it like the tides of the lake on which the village is set. Sometimes stormy, sometimes calm, always beautiful and with a hint of danger… The imagery and symbolism and beauty of the words washes over you and infuses into your being.

Looking for a resolution in such a story is as pointless as wishing for a ‘happy’ ending. This is a great example of a story where the destination is in the journey and I for one felt privileged to have travelled in the world of Walker and the mind and writing of Porter for a short time.  I find it remarkable that this is a debut novel. This is a rare and unique writing talent."

Cally Phillips

From the Publisher

"The Shoreline and the Sea" is the first novel by John Porter. Produced in a strictly limited first edition of 200 copies, each copy is numbered and signed by the author.

This first edition has been beautifully produced by Ditto Press, a small East London print firm. They were the first company in the UK to specialise in Risograph printing, a technique that covers the ground between digital print and hand-made screen printing. This gives the print a warm texture, with subtle imperfections.
