Description:
Homer's age-old tale is retold in a manner that bespeaks elegance, comedy, tragedy, and poetry. A war hero whose silvery image tarnishes, Jules Lissy returns "home" to find that Penny, his unfaithful wife, has entered into a life-long relationship with a fellow islander. At the end of The Odd of Sea, Jules Lissy comes to outgrow revenge and returns to the sea, with his ship, with his mast, his "moveable tree of life".
