Stories of the Sea (Everyman's Library Pocket Classics Series) (Hardcover)


Hard to Find (or) Out of Stock Indefinitely
A gathering of the best maritime fiction from the last two hundred years: tales of adventure, shipwrecks, storms at sea, creatures from the deep, and voyages that test human limits on the wild and limitless waters.
Classic adventures stories by Joseph Conrad, Rudyard Kipling, Stephen Crane, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Jack London mix with marvelously imaginative tales by Isak Dinesen, Patricia Highsmith, and J. G. Ballard. Robert Olen Butler explores the memories of a Titanic victim who has become part of the sea that swallowed him; Ray Bradbury’s “The Fog Horn” summons something primeval and lonely from the ocean depths; John Updike’s vacationing lovers retrace the route of Homer’s Odyssey on a cruise ship.

The 18 stories here, as wide-ranging and entrancing as the sea itself, include:

• “After the Storm” by Ernest Hemingway
• “Cruise” by John Updike
• “The Cruise of The Jolly Roger” by Kurt Vonnegut
• “The Open Boat” by Stephen Crane
• “The House of Mapuhi” by Jack London
• “John Marr” by Herman Melville
• “Now Wakes the Sea” by J.G. Ballard
