Description: "Possibly the best American novel since The Old Man and the Sea. Maybe even Moby-Dick". -- The New York Times Book Review

A classic tale of a man, a boat, and a storm, Spartina, written in 1989, is the story of Dick Pierce, a commercial fisherman along the shores of Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay. A kind, sensitive family man, he is also prone to irascible outbursts against the people he must work for now that he can no longer make his living from the sea.

Pierce's one great passion, a fifty-foot fishing boat called Spartina, lies unfinished in his yard. Determined to get the funds to buy her engine, he takes a foolish risk. But his real test comes when he must weather a storm at sea in order to keep his dream alive. Moving and poetic, Spartina is a masterly story of one man's ongoing struggle to find his place in the world.

"Vivid...engrossing...old-fashioned, full-bodied fiction with a vengeance.... They do not make novels like this very much anymore". -- Time
