Read full description of the books:
One of the details I like about December is having the chance to read a few of those books I meant to get to earlier during the year. GR friend Ladiibbug and I swapped a few books (was it really back in 2015?!) and I have finally been able to read them. LB, sorry I took so long, but many many thanks for the wonderful book!
All Fisherman Are Liars takes us to the Dry Dock bar for a lunchtime discussion between the author and her best friend Alden. She wants to tell him to slow down and give up fishing because of his poor health, but is not sure how to bring up the subject. It does come up eventually, but meanwhile we get to hear stories. Of storms, of weird mishaps, of more storms, of inspiring survivals after freak (and/or storm-caused) accidents, of a delightful little fishing trip by the author's brother and his two very young sons.
This was not the first book Greenlaw wrote, but it is the first of hers I have read. I love reading about the sea. I would never be able to be any kind of sailor, but I love the idea of life on the ocean. This book gave me a glimpse at what happens when the people who go out to catch the fish that feed the rest of us say goodbye to loved ones and leave the docks. I liked the writing style: very straightforward and friendly. And I liked the way she connected all the stories into her concern for her friend. This made the whole book much more meaningful than it would have been if she had just baldly related the stories she wanted to share.
I have already started on the second Greenlaw book Ladiibbug sent me, The Hungry Ocean. I will get to see how she became who she was in All Fishermen, and I am looking forward to the voyage!

Read information about the authorLinda Greenlaw's three bestselling books about life as a commercial fisherman -- THE HUNGRY OCEAN (1999), THE LOBSTER CHRONICLES (2002) and ALL FISHERMEN ARE LIARS (2004) -- have climbed as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list. She is the winner of the U.S. Maritime Literature Award in 2003, and the New England Book Award for nonfiction in 2004. Time Magazine called her 2005 RECIPES FROM A VERY SMALL ISLAND, co-authored with her mother Martha Greenlaw, a "must-have cookbook".
Before becoming a writer, Linda Greenlaw was the captain of a sword boat, the career that earned her a prominent role in Sebastian Junger's THE PERFECT STORM and a portrayal in the subsequent film. She has been featured on Good Morning America, Today, CBS Sunday Morning, The Martha Stewart Show, and National Public Radio. She now lives on Isle au Haut, Maine, where she captains a lobster boat.
When Linda Greenlaw confessed a desire to write fiction, readers responded with an enthusiastic "Please do!" At last, she satisfies their hunger with SLIPKNOT, a sharp-witted, compulsively readable mystery, the first in a series featuring marine investigator Jane Bunker. As she proved in THE HUNGRY OCEAN, no one knows the sea like Linda Greenlaw. And as she proved in THE LOBSTER CHRONICLES, no one has a better way with the telling details of Maine village life. SLIPKNOT delivers everything readers want: a great setting, wonderful characters, an authentic and original detective -- and a story that will keep them on the edge of their seats.
