Chris Stewart's sea-faring 'prequel' to Driving Over Lemons was launched into the hardback bestseller list in May, where it's been bobbing about happily ever since. Sort of Books plan to make this paperback plain sailing too. It will be published in the same format and price as his ever popular Spanish trilogy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Laugh yourself silly! Wonderful! * Books Quarterly *
Witty, self-deprecating and charming, Stewart makes wonderful company even if you do get soaked in the process. It's a book with a big heart and a great belly laugh -- Kathleen Wyatt * The Times *
A charming and lyrical read, awash with the joy of discovery...I've never read a funnier description than his detailed advice on How to Pee at Midnight during a Force -- Rory Maclean * Guardian *
It is easy to enthuse about the simple pleasures of life, but hard to write about them well. Stewart's gift is to do so with the carefree manner of someone you've just met in a bar, and who is buying the drinks -- Hugh Thomson * Independent *
His enthusiasm and sheer good nature are infectious and, like Bill Bryson, with whom he's sometimes compared, he's a hard man to dislike * Mail on Sunday *
This is a lovely little book... you really get a sense of what it's like aboard an ocean-going sailing ship -- Sam Leith * Daily Mail *

“Good, but not great”

Supposed to be a funny book, but apart from the odd item didn't laugh that much. That said was written well as all the other Chris Stewart books are.
