Synopsis: This is the story of Simon William Behler, a popular New Journalist whose career has peaked. In 1980 he is lost overboard off the coast of Sri Lanka while attempting to retrace, with his lover, the legendary voyages of Sinbad the Sailor.
Rambunctious, sexy, and full of narrative high jinks, The Last Voyage Of Somebody The Sailor is a bawdy epic that somehow merges medieval Baghdad and twentieth-century Maryland in a virtuoso performance by a National Book Award-winner, and one of America’s most outrageously innovative writers.
