The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea, Paperback

The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea Paperback



A band of savage thirteen-year-old boys reject the adult world as illusory, hypocritical, and sentimental, and train themselves in a brutal callousness they call 'objectivity'.

When the mother of one of them begins an affair with a ship's officer, he and his friends idealise the man at first; but it is not long before they conclude that he is in fact soft and romantic.

They regard this disallusionment as an act of betrayal on his part - and the retribution is deliberate and horrifying.
