The Watery Part of the World by Michael Parker

This is a book where the subject matter and the writing style align beautifully. Parker’s sleepy prose evokes the ocean so well that I often wondered if it was intentional…moments before I dozed off. This is in no way a reflection of the book’s somnolence; the story itself is riveting! The best way that I can describe it is Faulknerian. High praise for any author, no?
