Theatre of Fish, Travels Through Newfoundland and Labrador
by John Gimlette
- TRAVEL NARRATIVE
- 356 PAGES
Gimlette (At the Tomb of the Inflatable Pig) reels in history, folklore and some pretty odd characters in this rollicking account of his travels around The Rock. His Newfoundland, steeped in myth and cod, is more than slightly off kilter. We can almost forgive him for occasionally being too clever for his own good! Gimlette travels, in part, in the footsteps of his adventurous great-grandfather Eliot Curwen and much-ballyhooed contemporary Wilfred Grenfell, about whom we learn a great deal.
