Product Details

Praise

"Brilliantly written and mesmerically evocative, Köepf’s extraordinary novel is a tribute to tough men and their long-suffering, and sometimes
not-so-long-suffering, families."
The Los Angeles Times

"[Köepf] has filled The Fisherman’s Son with bountiful helpings of the heart and vigor that we look for in the Great American Novel."
The Oregonian

"Imagine Sebastian Junger’s The Perfect Storm without its long-winded passages or the dry-as-toast science. That’s what you get with Michael Köepf’s powerful and poignant novel."
The Denver Post

"The memories and flashbacks that compose the bulk of the book display a remarkable diversity. They range through adventures on the high seas, coming-of-age tales, family dramas, and some absolutely superb descriptions of the daily work on a fishing boat. . . . My eight-year-old son, who insisted I read to him all the shipwreck scenes, listened wide-eyed, gulping, utterly enthralled."
The San Francisco Chronicle
