Overview

This vintage book contains a novel by the French author, Pierre Loti. It portrays the romantic but unavoidably sad life of Breton fishermen who sail every summer to the tumultuous Iceland cod grounds. Described by literary critic Edmund Gosse as "the most popular and finest of all his writings,'' this is a volume that is not to be missed by collectors and fans of Loti's seminal writing, and one that would make for a worthy addition to any personal library. Pierre Loti (1850 – 1923) was a French novelist and naval officer most remembered for his works Aziyadé (1879) and Madame Chrysanthème (1887). Many antiquarian books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing 'An Iceland Fisherman' now in a modern, affordable edition complete with a prefatory biography of the author.

    Surprisingly Good

    I picked up a very old version of this book for a dollar. (It didn't have a book cover, just plain blue, which is why I didn't rate the cover.) I didn't really know what to expect, so it was a pleasant surprise. The writing was easy to get lost in, even if the plot was, in retrospect, rather simplistic. I liked the characters. But don't expect a happy ending!
