Come Hell On High Water: A Really Sullen Memoir - used book

ISBN: 0865475229

ID: 691951

Let's face it: Gregory Jaynes doesn't do anything halfway. When he drinks, he gets drunk; when he gets horny, he ends up in bed with a betel nut-chewing Samoan prostitute; and when he decides to leave his wife and family in order to find himself, he goes all the way to the South Pacific--on a Russian icebreaker! Jaynes brings a similar neck-or-nothing attitude to his memoir of this voyage of discovery; subtitled A Really Sullen Memoir, Come Hell on High Water is Jaynes's harrowing and hilarious account of several months spent at sea with the surliest bunch of seafarers since the HMS Bounty. Among the inmates on board this very slow boat to Singapore are Toxic June, an elderly woman who delights in setting the passengers against each other; Agatha of the Lake District, a flirtatious septuagenarian, and her husband, Dick; Tennessee Ernie, a veteran of the war in the Pacific whose wartime reminiscences form the bulk of his conversation; and Little "Born to be Wild" Peter, a fussy retired pharmacist with an underdeveloped sense of humor. As if a boatload of squabbling senior citizens weren't already enough to set Jaynes on edge, he must also contend with stopped-up toilets, inedible meals prepared by the Russian cook "Tuber, the Root-Crop Czar," and the boat's constant vibration which makes his "testicles hum like a tom cat's." Is it any wonder that Jaynes is crying like a baby in the captain's quarters before the ship even reaches the Phili biographies,education and reference,memoirs,specific groups,transportation,travel,travel writing,writing,writing research and publishing guides Travel Writing, North Point Press
