Summary
"This volume tells the story of Patrick O'Brian's life up to his decision to move to Collioure in the South of France. His oppressed childhood, his precocious writing success, his sailing experiences as a young man, and the truth behind his first marriage, divorce, and name change are all set forth with candor and sympathy. Along the way Nikolai Tolstoy reveals the seeds of inspiration that one day would lead to comparisons with Jane Austen and even Homer."--BOOK JACKET
