    Signals Of Distress

    By: Jim Crace

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    In the winter of 1836 the "Belle of Wilmington" is wrecked off Wherrytown. The Captain and his American sailors flirt, drink, brawl, repair the damage to their ship . . . and inflict fresh damage on the town. Another visitor marooned far from home is Aymer Smith, a man brimming with good intentions both for the "Belle's" black slave cook Otto and for himself, a virgin and a blunderer in search of a wife.

    Amid the haunting, monumental landscape and a wealth of characters that rival Dickens's most enduring creations, the hopes and hazards of the Old World are pitched - unforgettably - against the New.
