Overview

Fishing for Compliments: The Memoires of a Galley Slave by Suzy Annett-Brown

This little book is not just about cooking fish in your own kitchen but an invitation to leave it and travel to the Mediterranean countries where it was caught. The English author, being only the third ever professional fishing woman in France at the time, takes you on some crazy adventures to Corsica, Italy, Malta, Turkey and North Africa in the 1960s and 70s where you will meet with rough weather, mad donkeys, racing drivers and nudists, but to mention a few, but always compensates you with a good meal and a laugh whatever the outcome. It is an introduction to the wonderful world of fish in the hope that it will inspire you to navigate further into the advantageous waters of this exciting and plentiful source of food.

About the Author

Suzy ANNETT-BROWN was born in London in 1947 on the hottest day in living memory and she doesn't seem to have cooled down since. She was academically educated at Holland Park School in London but it wasn't until she and her family left England on a very old boat that her 'real' education started. For many years she widely travelled the Mediterranean on a variety of boats doing different jobs and finally "settled down" (a word she despises) in France where she married a Frenchman, took up professional fishing, sign writing and started a boat to boat ice cream and booze selling service on the Canal du Midi in Southern France among other humdrum jobs. She makes documentary films in her spare time (several award winning) and was also a journalist for several years writing for a variety of newspapers and magazines. She now lives happily in a little village in the South of France with her second husband and some cats and although still writing, cannot decide what she wants to do when she grows up.
