Description
Information
The sea: turbulent and leaden; transparent and opaque; magician and mother.

When Charles Arrowby, over sixty, a demi-god of the theatre - director, playwright and actor - retires from his glittering London world in order to "abjure magic and become a hermit", it is to the sea that he turns. He hopes at last to escape from "the women" - but unexpectedly meets one whom he loved long ago. His Buddhist cousin, James, also arrives. He is menaced by a monster from the deep. Charles finds his "solitude" peopled by the drama of his own fantasies and obsessions.

Winner of the Booker Prize.
