“Trawler ”

Trawler
By Redmond O'Hanlon

Redmond O'Hanlon has previously shown us his aptitude for exploration in his other books; Into the Heart of Borneo, In Trouble Again and Congo, and, as a past natural history editor of The Times Literary Supplement, he should know a little about marine life. So why, in his latest book Trawler, does he find himself all at sea? Perhaps there are more reasons than simply that Redmond lacks sea legs; he is a landlubber, born with scarecrow's legs.
