Description
Information
Drawing on his vivid youthful memories of the seaside town of Weymouth, Powys tells the story of Jobber Skald's obsessive hatred of the town magnate and his redeeming love for Perdita Wane, a young girl from the Channel Islands. Weymouth Sands boasts a striking collection of human oddities, including a famous clown, his mad brother, a naive Latin teacher and a young philosopher. Against the haunting background of the Dorset coast, Powys weaves the story of these characters into a brilliant epic tale.
