I love how compact this story is, with everything it needs included in such few lines.

Loved it. It beautifully

Loved it. It beautifully captured the mystical relationship between the fisherman and the sea and how communities who are dependent on that relationship strive to undertand it

A roller-coaster of family

A roller-coaster of family emotion centered around Uncle Joe, his life and complexities too familiar to many.
An excellent brief portrayal of Uncle Joe's life and times on the water in isolation from his tormentors to a sad end in the depths.

Saw a large live fish once at

Saw a large live fish once at a Chinese market. Someone got hold of it and cut its head off. The body was displayed on a slab and next to it, the head, still moving its mouth . Now I buy fish wrapped in plastic at the supermarket, or else I'll go mad. Totally believable story. Got me hooked. Love it.
