shipping forecast

In the Italian heat I am reading 'The Shipping News' set in the slushy freeze of a Newfoundland winter perhaps not, you might think, the best book for summer reading. However, there is something quite lovely about sitting in the sunshine, feet on cool polished granite reading about sailing into foggy murk knowing that for sure that you will not need your Sou'wester anytime soon. The book's poetic language and landscape descriptions have me caught hook, line and sinker.
