Sailor Twain is a triumph of collaboration. Lore, history, social ethics, and romance swirl together, wearving a thing of ominous beauty. I am also so happy to find a book that revives the original ethos of mermaid folklore, of trickery and eroticism. And to top it all off, this is a graphic novel! Truly, an objet d'art.

Victorian-era New York, a steamboat captain staying true to his ill wife, a lecherous boat owner and a mermaid, all wrapped up in a hardcover graphic novel. The beautiful charcoal drawings really help tell the tale, making more believable the danger of both night and water. Captain Twain pulls a wounded mermaid from the water and hides her in his cabin until she is healed, receiving her promise never to sing to him. But will she still pull him into the depths of the Hudson River? How many men has the mermaid captured with her song? Nudity and a few drawings of sexual acts might put off some readers but are entirely appropriate to the story. A very enjoyable read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
