Overview

Off the Deep End: Travels in Forgotten Frontiers by Tony Perrottet

In search of literary history and adventure,Tony Perrottet leaves behind the chaotic crowds of Manhattan for the far reaches of Europeon settlements where he explores the secret histories and strange connections of forgotten corners of the world.The entertaining tales of his obsessive travels to Tierra del Fuego,Thursday Island,St.Petersburg,and other places are peppered with anecdotes about Ernest Hemingway's fishing guide(who was the model for The Old Man and the Sea), Robinson Crusoe's bawdy lifestyle,and other little known facts.For every exotic adventure in a remote landscape Perrottet shows the reader the other side of his wild life: on the densely populated isle of Manhattan.
