Nancy Jack Todd : Annals of Earth

STRIPAH LOVE makes for unparalleled beach reading.
It is equally enjoyable elsewhere and in all seasons.

This review by Nancy Jack Todd appeared in Annals of Earth, the journal of Ocean Arks International. It was written by Nancy Jack Todd, a professional author herself whose most recent book is A Safe and Sustainable World: The Promise of Ecological Design (Island Press, 2005)

This book is irresistible. My personal interest in fish is confined to my overall environmental concerns and their role in planetary ecology, the economy of those who fish for a living and their availability for human consumption. I have a number of friends who are avid fishermen–few women–but I myself have no interest in the occupation whatsoever. That said, I loved Stephen Morris's STRIPAH LOVE and laughed heartily and often as I read it.

STRIPAH LOVE is a novel about a successful film director and producer who, when his career unexpectedly founders, returns to his roots. His roots have one foot in the waters of Boston Harbor and its denizens, scaly and otherwise. He also includes recipes for many of the former.

STRIPAH LOVE makes for unparalleled beach reading. It is equally enjoyable elsewhere and in all seasons.
