Elliott Bay Book Company says
One of our favorite novelists from this region, or anywhere, Jim Lynch continues the goldmine streak of Pacific Northwest-set novels that have included The Highest Tide, Border Songs, and Truth Like the Sun, with his newest, Before the Wind (Knopf). A-sailing we do go. What a delight.

Co-presented with Seattle7Writers.

“Jim Lynch does for sailing what A River Runs Through It did for fly-fishing. A family whose religion is sea, wind, and motion. All the complexities and exhilarations of family, failure, and the ties that hold us together set to the addictive rush of hulls slicing through water. A beautiful book that smells of the sea with every turn of the page.” -Luis Urrea.

“I never expected to be captivated by the world of sailing the way I was with Before the Wind. From the first paragraph I was hooked by Jim Lynch’s language, his humor, his wisdom. The characters are marvelous; the storytelling confident and rollicking; the whole book is a delight and surprise.” -Maria Semple.
