The Lawless and The Lotus by Peter Pinney


The Lawless and The Lotus by Peter Pinney

Travelling with only a change of clothes in an old pillow case, a typewriter & rusty speargun, Pinney's journey through the West Indies & Pacific in 1962 is alive in this traveller's tale of high seas, close tropical coasts, fishermen, bars & women and men of 'interesting character'. Intertwining arrests and close escapes, love, lust, loss, moonshine liquor, deportation & stowaways amongst lush landscapes and island communities from Guadeloupe to the New Hebrides, This is Pinney's lyrically written homecoming journey after 15 years on the road, arriving finally in Australia. Originally published by Angus & Robertson this is an exciting reprint of an Australian travel classic.

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
