One of my favorite books. Some people who write reviews on this site should simply sit on their hands and not so clearly reveal their ignorance to the world.

This is the only novel by Katherine Anne Porter, the first professional writer from the state of Texas. Her skills of elaborate description and character development may overwhelm the casual reader; but there is fertile ground for multiple adventures between the covers of Ship of Fools. A Texas bigot embarks on his journey of exploitation of the world's oil ports and brothels. The widow of a German owner of a Cuban sugar plantation is forced into exile following the collapse of the world's sugar market. A conflicted love between two young painters, one burdoned with supporting the other who is mired in telling the story of the oppressed proletariat.

I read this book with my book club, it was well written and certainly gave us plenty to talk about but I had to force myself to finish the book. Had it not been for book club I would have put it down after the first 100 pages.

The book was supposed to be a moral allegory and it was anything but that. Porter bounces from one character to the next.
